think about it this way - if you're going to spend about 250 to protect your legs, you should spend atleast that protecting whats controlling them.
it makes no sense to cut corners on the mask, even if you're in a D league
Doesn't seem to faze Osgood, Cloutier or Hasek much. Seriously if you're looking to keep it cheaper you can get away with a helmet/mask combo. I would also advise getting a throat guard though.
If it's rec hockey the mask is kind of a luxury IMO. My first 4 years in beer league I played with a helmet and mask exactly like Cloutier's and took a fair share of bullets of the melon without so much as a pressure cut.
