I'm a libertarian, so I don't buy the external costs arguments, mainly because any cost doesn't necessarily trump personal liberty. But anyways...

I have seen players out with cat eye cages before, pretty sure it's not USA Hockey approved.

But the difference between the 9500 with the thin silver oval wires and the old cages with the huge black bars is pretty huge. I tried skating once with a cheap black cage and couldn't focus on anything else, so I went without anything for a while, then got an 8500 and had no problem adjusting. When that started to rust, I got a 9500 and that was even thinner. Same thing happened to a friend of mine, he had the black bars and used nothing for a while until I got him to try the 8500, which he still uses today and has no problem (and he wears glasses too).
