I agree with fallenhero. Hockey has become a sport of wimps, even faster than football. I remember watching back in the early 90s when they used to just leave player corpses on the ice as obstacles in play. Hell, I remember when each team was given a net that exploded when scored upon, causing the offensive scorers to risk injury just to get the puck on net.

Now, if a player is breathed on, instant penalty shot. Makes me sick

I certainly long for the days when the NHL made Jerry Glanville's Pigskin Footbrawl look like tea and crumpets on a sunny afternoon.

I support full face guards. Crosby wouldn't have lost another scoring title.

And I'd have a greater chance of being in a car accident to and from the game then being hit in a spot where the visor would have certainly made a difference. I haven't seen that many injuries from pucks coming upwards where a visor actually made a difference. Look at Sid, shattered jaw and he has a visor on. And when you look at the angle of the puck on Staal I don't even think a visor would have prevented that either. Pucks rise up, there is a huge area still for those and sticks to still do damage.


I think all passengers in the vehicle should also wear visors.
