And Boychuk's injury was a puck to the face that I believe broke his orbital bone.

I don't think his required surgery tho but same principal. If Danny escapes with a broken nose he's very lucky.

I'm sure people were saying that when helmets became mandatory.

The fact of the matter is you have to protect the players from themselves sometimes. Some guys actually want to wear visors but choose not to because of how they may be perceived.

Another argument for making visors mandatory is so the league can protect it's assets. The NHL should put itself in the best position possible to keep their players safe. That includes forcing them to wear a visor.

I would also bet money that insurance companies insuring player salaries charge more to insure visorless players (if they don't, they should). There's big dollars at stake, it can't be boiled down to "they are adults and can decide for themselves". That works in beer leagues, but not with multi-million dollar annual salaries. Not long-term, anyway.

Paille was wearing a visor, and his face still got crushed.

Yep. If you're going to push an agenda, at least use example that actually help your cause. Thank God he was wearing a visor or else his nose may have been crushed by that puck...oh wait, that's what happened anyway.

That's because a visor doesn't cover a player's nose. Your eyes need protection a hell of a lot more than your nose. If that puck had been an inch or two higher, and Paille did NOT have a visor, he could have been blinded or even killed. When Boychuk got hit with a shot that broke his orbital bone, the doctor told him a fraction of an inch difference and he would have lost his eye. Which is why he now wears a visor.

Visors aren't perfect. They aren't going to spare a player every injury. They're like seat belts. Wearing a seat belt isn't going to make you immune if you're in a car crash, but they certainly can save your life.

Depending on how it goes I'd say Sat is reasonable

Perceived by who? Don Cherry?

If Zdeno Chara decided tomorrow that he wants to wear a visor to better protect himself, I'm sure he'd get some good-natured teasing around the locker room, but I really don't think a single sane person would consider Chara "not as tough" if he slapped a visor on.

What a horrifying sight after hearing the shot to see it go right into his face.

At first we didn't know who was hit and if he was wearing a visor because we were at the other end of the ice.

Get well soon!

Impossible to say without knowing how complex the surgery will be.

It was right in front of us and there was so much blood we couldn't tell where he had been hit. He had a bloody towel over his face and his visor was covered. There was a puddle of blood on the ice that was scrapped up.

It's hard being a den mother. We were scared for Dan.

We found out it was his nose from the guys behind the bench. I was happy his eye was ok.

Get well Danny Paille. You will be missed.

Zdeno Chara could wear his pink bunny suit and nobody would question his toughness. I don't think that was a reference to Chara.

One of the worst decisions the NCAA ever made was mandating face masks, I hope the NHL never does.

I would be OK with mandatory visors if they follow through with implementing the snap off ones.

But everyone listen to Dojji, he has player hockey on many levels and knows his stuff.

If a mask would have prevented Paille's serious injury I'm all for it.
Who cares if we can't see their beautiful faces. Their health and continued performance with the team is what matters to me.

Hope he's gonna be OK.

When I was in high school none of the pros wore helmets, including the goalies. There were players who accumulated over 600 stitches above the shoulders during their careers and many had lost all their front teeth.

I was at a Providence Reds game when legendary Rangers goalie Gump Worsley took a shot smack in the middle of the forehead. It knocked him backwards off his feet into the cage. A gusher of blood shot out of the wound and flooded the crease. It was gruesome. It wasn't long after that when the first goalie mask showed up.

In my view protection makes sense, including mandatory visors.
