I agree. We have to keep in mind that hockey equipment is expensive. Young guys have a lot of things to pay for, education, a cool car, beer etc...
I am being facetious but truth is an adult with a steady stream of revenue can afford a new helmet when a crack appears. A younger guy cannot always justify it. And his chances are good if not heavily in favor of not putting yourself at any additional risk by playing with equipment that is one tick down from perfect.
