It is in response to an injury though. Granted Emelin's case is in a bit of a grey area but at the end of the day if a doctor tells the NHL that he should wear a cage and then the NHL forbids it and Emelin does lose sight in his eye he would have a great case to sue. I think the NHL would want to avoid it and just let him wear a cage. It's not like the cage provides an unfair advantage.
