I don't understand the "I don't want to separate my shoulder" arguement. All the separated shoulders I've witnessed (3 of 'em) were from people putting out a hand when they fell on the ice. Shoulder pads don't hold your shoulders or collar bones together.
Three's not much of a sample size and it's a pretty bold jump to make the conclusion that shoulderpads don't prevent separated shoulders. It's obviously possible to dislocate or separate your shoulder through an impact.
