Ironic considering in the 80's for whatever reason some holdovers didn't want to wear helmets...try rationalizing that these days. I remember after Brad Marsh got smashed in the Boston game ..I believe the same game Hextall scored which I attended...he was out with the concussion..wore the helmet for a while..and then decided he couldn't play well with it so he took it off again....
