I hope the NHL implements a rule like IIHF, non-visors only for over 35 and will be permanently banned in 3-4 years where all players required to wear visors in International Tournaments.
If safety is your biggest concern, visors should just be skipped all together and the NHL should enforce full-cages. That's the only way you're going to completely protect the players faces.

Why isn't anyone that's pro-visors suggesting this?
