Those darn goalie masks. Gave a bad image to every self-respecting horror movie madman. One guy puts one on, and the next thing you know, mass murderers have a bad reputation, not to mention the decrease in popularity of the name Jason. Go bare like pre-Plante, dang it.
Seriously- I like helmets/masks because of the protection they provide, but I miss seeing the guys' hair flowing behind them like they were rock stars (Ron Duguay, anyone?) and I miss the way that they recognized that they were vulnerable. They knew the difference between hurt and injure and played to hurt.
The game being faster has made it more dangerous, but maybe we've lost something with all this speed.
