here's is the thing the way I see it. the little fabric ones with some padding are not going to save you from a skate blade. I had a guy fall next to me near the net, his heel came up and cut my thigh. real good cut. the thing is it went through my pants (tackla's) just missed the thigh pad. through the hockey sock underneath. the old knit style ones, and the compression pants I had on underneath all that stuff.those flismy neck guards my protect you from a grazing wound but what happened to Zednik I doubt it would have stopped that skate. I would think that a kevlar one might lesson the injury though.
