NHL and wearing visors...what do you think?

Post by yipster32 on Mon Mar 11, 2013 11:13 am

Marc Staal gets nailed in the eye region with a puck off a deflection...




Yet another push for mandatory visor use ensues....what do you all think?

It's amazing that players and even goalies didn't wear any type of head gear or masks back in the day.


I am all for the visors! Especially if it helps prevent injuries. They should be able to have the ones like in the NFL and get them tinted different colors!

i agree that they should wear visors, but if you look at a few players...they tilt their visors up (example: carl hagelin), so wearing the visor is kind of useless lol.

I think that it is a great to wear the visor. Why would you risk your eyes getting injured?

the guy with the most titled visor is kronwall why even have one lol...but if you wear a visor like heatley there is no room on the face to be hit he should wear a full cage...I still think it should be by choice because your enforcers won't want to wear them

I remember seeing Jeff O'Neil take a puck off the face when he was with the Hurricanes...looked absolutely aweful!
