If no and you're just playing for fun then I would recommend a full cage. Do I need to post youtube videos of pucks being tipped, teeth falling out, high sticks and eyes being lost?
This sums it up for me.
I've seen a guy have an eye sliced open from a stick, another one almost the same but luckily "just" got sliced between the eyes and stitched up for the gaping gash, another have teeth knocked out on a follow through shot, as well as other close calls.
I value my vision and want to see my kids grow up, and I am content with my full set of teeth. I don't get paid to play...I'm the one who pays. Guys can call me a p**** all they want -- I don't need a bozo like them giving me a life altering injury over what should be a game. Play the game hard, but there are too many heroes out there that make rec leagues their NHL.
This is coming from someone who has never played without a cage and never plans to do so.
