Hope not, lot's of schools (and DIII schools don't have big staff like the major college hockey programs (i.e team doctors and dentists) land like I belive the major Jr teams do.

I don't think players are choosing between the NCAA and Major Jr. because they're choosing the cage or visor. If College Hockey Inc keeps raising the the overall profile of college hockey that'll be more successful than taking away the cage. Also college hockey rosters are set and unlike major jr and pro hockey there's no call ups if more players are injured (ie increase in facial and teeth injuries)
