I bought them after losing a few boxing and a mouthful from a stick in the mouth;) and no, the puck didn't slide along the ice after Boom Boom Geoffrion and Bobby Hull popularized the 100 MPH slapshot .. The amazing thing to me is that although Jacque Plante brought in the goalie mask in 1959 most goaltenders didn't wear one until several years later and one NHL goaltender 'Fearless" Andy Brown still didn't wear one 15 years later.. About the same with helmets.. The "macho" image ya know? I don't expect the league to use common sense now anymore than the did with the "mask" or the "helmet"
Thought that's what you meant by having the receipt....
It's amazing how stupid humans can be!
To me, wearing a visor is a no brainer. Fake teeth can be bought and you can still perform the basic function of eating food with fake teeth. Eyeballs cannot be replaced. In many cases, once your vision is fucked, it's fucked.
It's amazing to me when you see a guy like Mats Sundin have a scary eye injury, yet he goes back to playing without a visor. Sami Salo and Chris Pronger were the same way. Eric Staal is now talking about "thinking about" wearing a visor as a result of his brother's incident, but I bet he doesn't.
