Skate fenders are only useful at extremely high levels and are only needed for penalty killers and blocking shot Dmen..
Im going to have to disagree with you on this one. I have had two different guys on my teams get fractures from pucks. My original statement was a joke and I dont wear them but I dont blame anybody for wearing them.
