As someone who enjoys playing open hockey with friends visor-less, I still think the NHL needs to make them mandatory. The evolution of the game calls for it, just like it did for helmets years ago. The game is only getting faster, and with more shot-blocking and deflections, injuries like Staals will be more common, albeit still uncommon overall.

Visors were worn primarily to protect the eyes from sticks and as a super precaution for pucks. If I were a NHLer I'd be just as concerned about pucks flying up (as much as sticks) in 2013 and onward.
