Cages are optional for us, I wear one, probably a little over half our team use them, less in training session. A few weeks ago during training a guy go hit in the eye by the stick on the follow-through whilst chasing down a breakaway (he was reaching forwards so his head was pretty low). An incident like that is nobody's fault, it happens in the game we play.

Luckily the damage was only superficial a fair bit of blood but nothing else but if he'd been wearing the cage he would have been uninjured. Nobody complained about it, tried to blame anyone, there is no point. It was his choice to play without it and that's just what happens - half the team still choose not to wear cages.

Edit: Also see Taylor Hall for how to be injured without it being anyone's fault. Again I have no problem with people choosing not to wear a cage - but then you've got to be prepared to accept the consequences however they occur
