So let me put this out there - if players didn't wear
equipment, would that bring back
? It seems to me that players are much more agressive now than they used to be because they feel so well protected themselves. If you knew it was going to hurt when someone shot you in the head (shin, arm, whatever...) with a puck, wouldn't you be less likely to carelessly shoot the puck at some one else? Watch any shinny game and you'll see that's true.
It will never become the norm in competitive hockey, I'm just saying....
