Nothing wrong with the cage. Had a visor for a while and sometimes play with no visor or cage. Saw Crosby get hit in the face and when I heard he was not coming back into the game I realized it is much smarter as a player to wear a cage.
Forget the pain, the possible surgeries or the look... The fact that you could get hit in the face in anyway and not be able to play for the game or for a few games or whole season is depressing and does not help your team. And most of these injuries could be saved through wearing a cage.
So now I wear a cage in all my games.
The soviets were one of the first to wear helmets. They did the simple research, injuries to the head were likely and if your best player got hurt and could not play then your team will have less of a chance to win.
