Hell, goalies used to not wear any protection on their face and they were up against 115mph+ slap shots with (what are now) illegally curved sticks.

Keep it an option but don't make it mandatory.
The illegal curves didn't increase the speed of shots it just made the puck harder for the goalie to pick up because it had odd spin on it
