Mind you i grew up playing with a few and have know the majority of the zebras for years so...
That's the beauty of the game ... I have some fun with some of the players I grew up with over the years.

Until they figure out how to replace busted eye balls, and make it easier to speak with a wired jaw (I need to be able to speak for my job), I will wear a cage.

An arm, a leg... those heal and do not pose any threat to earning a living to feed my family. We all do whatever suits our individual lives and responsibilities.

i guess that depends on how much time you can take off work? I'd assume a broken femur, bad break at the tibia, etc could lay one up for a while.

I agree with you, im trying to make a point that a cage/visor isnt as mandatory as most make it out to be. Dont get paid to play etc.

Breaking a wrist, hand, arm, leg, foot is the worst thing that could happen to me job wise. Once again its hockey, that **** can happen, its the nature of the beast.

If you have a desk job, probalby not. They make casts and braces, and in really bad cases, wheelchairs. If you have a desk job, you can still do that just fine.

Face cages I figure this:

1. Don't NOT wear one unless you've got experience and feel comfortable without one.

2. If you choose to not wear a full face cage, you don't have the right IMHO to complain if you take a stick or puck to the face, assuming it's unintentional. I had a puck deflect off my stick and bounce up and catch a guy 5 feet away in the mouth. Cut him open and knocked a tooth out. As much as I wanted to feel bad, I didn't, because it was an accident and it could have been prevented.
