I would love to see both NHLers and juniors wearing full cages. Not only will it protect against all sorts of cuts, bruises, eye damage, broken teeth....but they can also absorb some of the impact from dirty hits from behind into the boards and any other play where a player goes face first into anything (goalpost, into another player, into the boards, etc).

It makes the most about of sense. Too bad there are still too many dinosaurs left in the game who try too hard to act like walking around with a half dozen missing teeth somehow makes someone tough. Sorry kids, but it doesn't. It means you were too slow to get out of the way and too stupid to use the protection that exists.
