Guys that play without shoulders or full cages make me scratch my head. Are they all directly related to a dentist who fixes their teeth for free? As for shoulders.... I could not see a reason to stop wearing them. Pucks and sticks come up, defelctions, who knows ... you get hit into the boards... why risk a preventable injury? For mobility? I do not buy it.

I have played in competive hockey for over 30 years...I am used to equipement. It does not restrict my movements at all, it is all I ever knew. Honestly, when the puck s in play, I cannot feel my equipement, only my gloves, skates and stick.

How big would the performance edge be? My guess, not enough to put my health, and directly related, my job, at risk.
