are neck guards and wrist guards worth the money?

It's still not a good bet that you'll ever really need it, but why take the chance when there IS a risk or cataclysmic injury.
Life is calculated risks. I'm far more worried about concussions or heart attacks than I am a skate blade. The biggest risk in my league is heart attack. A couple guys have died and left behind their wives and young kids.
I get what you're saying. I've had the same argument with folks who wear visors...I don't get it. I've taken dozens of pucks and sticks to the cage. I've seen guys get sliced up and lose teeth wearing visors. That's the risk they want to take for the sake of comfort.
