Would you feel sympathy for a goalie who got hit in the throat after he refuses to wear some kind of neck protection?
Is it against the rules to shoot a puck at the net? If I get hit with an errant puck or someone's stick gets knocked up into my face, that's life. If some idiot is waving his stick around because he doesn't know what he's doing, that's different.

No matter how many times you blame the other player it is still you needing medical help.
Obviously I understand that. It does not absolve the other player of fault for not being able to control his stick.
