As "manly" as it may have been to wear no mask, I've never figured why goalies continued to go bare faced in the post-Jacques Plante era.
Back in 1962 I was having a conversation with Gump Worsley, and Vern Buffey and Worsley's reason for not wearing a face mask was that "You can't tell me that when you wear one and look down for the puck at your feet, there isn't a blind spot."
He was one of the last goalies to put on a mask.
