Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
In The department of player safety, the NHL Players’ Association has much to answer for, as does the NHL.
For last night at the Garden, when a Kimmo Timonen drive rocketed off Jakub Voracek’s blade up into the right eye of Marc Staal at 5:45 of the third period, it served as yet another reminder and another example of the insanity of not making visors a mandatory piece of equipment in the NHL.
This “personal choice” position on the issue staked out by the PA that is no more and no less a consensus of its rank and file is from another era.
Can there be anything more precious than one’s eyes; anything more critical to protect than one’s vision?
