That's a load of crap. I've worn a full cage since I started playing, and I've never been called for a high stick (nor gotten away with one). And I've taken plenty of high sticks from guys with a half visor or nothing at all.

I get pissed about taking high sticks from other people anyway; my throat is unprotected, and taking a stick off the helmet isn't all that much fun even if you do have a mask.

If you're seriously convinced that you "know" it's people with cages that wave their sticks around like crazy people, I would suggest you read up on "confirmation bias".

I was going to switch from a cage to a half visor and mouthguard almost 15 years ago...had made the decision but had not gotten around to it....

Was playing in a tournament and a shot from my teammate at the point was deflected around the hash marks...I was in front of the net jostling with a defenseman and screening their goalie....puck slammed into the bottom half of my cage....

Had I made the switch already I would have eaten the puck, mouthguard and a collection of my teeth....still wearing a cage to this day....
