And just because the NHL has access to technology, doesn't mean they employ it. Are you telling me that a football helmet isn't a better at preventing head and face injuries than a hockey helmet?

The game changes as players get stronger and faster. Equipment and rules have to change as well. This is not a novel idea, even in the NHL. Helmets weren't required 20-30 years ago.
All the NHL needs to do is go back to the old days of padding ... the hard plastic was a horrible idea and has failed miserably
