Hell, the same was said about HELMETS too. It amazes me how many pros don't use some sort of face shield, considering one accident could end a player's career. Lose an eye, you could be done.

My younger bro started wearing one about a month ago and he says he can't even feel it. He has one of the Kevlar guards and they are designed to prevent cuts, not stabs (like being stepped on) or shots.
Look at the rate of injuries that occur to the head even with a helmet and then compare that to the number of neck injuries that occur from skate cuts. There's just no comparison.
