are neck guards and wrist guards worth the money?

I can't deal with the neck guard. Had to wear it last year of youth hockey, ugh.
Wrist guards are unnecessary for me because I'm short and have large elbow pads that cover the gap to my gloves.
This -- I tried a neck guard on once and standing still it was one of the most uncomfortable things I've ever worn. I can't imagine how much worse it gets when you're moving around.
I do believe that if you're fitted properly for elbow pads and gloves that your wrists should be covered. I almost never take sticks to the wrists though in my beer leagues. People are usually more calm and if they are taking liberties with the stick, I have no problem giving it right back and they learn their lesson pretty quickly.
