Time For A Visor Rule

If you haven’t seen this video, don’t watch if you are squeamish. It’s not a pretty sight. What it reinforces is the fact that the NHL needs to require every player to wear a visor.

I can hear the howls from “old-time” hockey fans about how it cheapens the game and I can hear the howls from people who claim that it will adversely affect play. But, here’s the thing. Those were the same arguments against the adoption of mandatory helmets and the AHL, which a majority of NHL’ers graduate from, already mandates visors.

The players won’t want to look like wimps so the only way this happens is if the NHL gets together with the NHLPA and makes this rule change. For the sake of the players’ eyesight, I hope they don’t wait too long.

    nerf pucks, problem solved.

    Did the lock out end? Is that a clip from last year? 🙂

      I like the nerf pucks idea!

      And I am sure the Thrashers game will be in a moment….

    they stopped covering them on the local channel a couple years ago, been boycotting games over their dumb ownership…one of these days though I’ll buy a ticket and go down to a game and let them hear my wrath…
