Maybe someone else can confirm this as I'm not 100% sure, but I think Sopel's been wearing a visor all preseason. Anybody know if that's true? If so, anyone know why? Did he suffer an injury, or just decide to start playing it safe? :dunno:

:joker: Yeah and he can't use the hair-in-the-eyes-excuse now with that haircut. Now if only we could find a way to help him from tripping over that bothersome blueline.

Actually, I think that Sopel will have a much better season; I just feel it.

He got cut just above the eye. He had to wear a visor to protect that cut.

All your visor are belong to Brent Sopel?

:o Get outta the garbage can, Oscar!

Yeah, I saw Sopel wearing the visor to. He is defensive partners with Ohlund, maybe Ohlund gave him that talk about the eye injury that almost cost him his career. Ohlund is very pro-visor, he tried to encourage it on Linden last year, but Linden didn't like it much. Maybe Sopel bought into Ohlund's diatribe? :p

LOL, he should talk to Bertuzzi; I remember last year Bertuzzi refused to wear one even in the game right after Nabokov almost made him a cyclops. :rolly:

His visor/Itech helmet combo looks very good acually, adds more "skill" look into him :)

Yeah, he's also been wearing a new mouthguard too, if you've noticed. :D

Couldn't resist poking at least a little fun at such a *trivial* thing.
