Just like how players choose not to wear visors. It's their choice.
Grandfather them in.
At least visors.
CHL and NCAA and below are mandated anyway.
It shouldn't be a choice anymore.
I didn't want to derail the thread. But its an issue I've always felt strongly about. And got on the subject because Staal's concussion was brought up.
