Heh, I guess I missed this thread way back when. I duno, around here you get players of all different calibers. I play opens with some guys who played minor league and college hockey all the time. Besides the mobility issues, I've had stingers through my goalie skates after taking some of their shots off the cowling. My point is that even some rec guys have a hard enough shot to do some damage.

Again, just isn't worth the risk.

Yeah I have been hit in the toe just playing D and I wished I had goalie skates on at that moment.

My son plays goal in a house league (7 and 8 year olds) and I got him goalie skates right away.
I think only a fool would risk a foot injury like what you can get from not having the right protective equipment while playing net (it's just a game).

wasn't suggesting just a players helmet with a regular cage. would suggest a goalie cage with a 'dangler' as part of it or one attached - also should wear throat collar.

playing oldtimers hockey - if expense is an issue besides buying all used equipment (except for jock - get new goalie one), a good way to cut some cost is not getting a mask.

many goalies in the nhl in the past couple decades used a helmet/cage. soderstrom, irbe, hasek (used to), and more recently osgood come to mind.
