Forget toughness, injuries, glass jaws or whatever you want to talk about. Because of that innocent little play he becomes injured and is out for that entire game. And out for the remainder of the season. Simply because he does not wear a cage lol.
If he wears a cage, Crosby goes on to crush the Islander in that game and probably goes on to have 2 points per game and win the MVP and probably set his team up with the best chemistry for a stronger playoff run.
I understand we like comfort, we hate the vision impairement it causes. But it was the same with helmets. Soviets were it regularly because they knew it would keep them protected. Protected so they can play at the top level at all times.
Um, he doesn't wear a cage for the same reason all other NHLers don't wear cages. It's outlawed equipment unless a player has an injury.
Not that they would wear a cage if they could anyways....
