Ian Laperriere Will Start Wearing A Visor

He blocked another shot with his head tonight that took around 60 stitches to close.

He talks about going to a visor for the rest of his career.

I mean…maybe he should just stop blocking shots with his face.

His face is the place the puck would do the least damage.

I’m sure. He blocks several shots with his face, calls himself out for being “stupid” and “macho,” and will now wear a visor because its in the best interest of his family.

Yea, that’s pretty much everything great about hockey players.

Who taught him how to block shots?  Put your glove over your face man.  Legs first, don’t lead with the face.  A visor isn’t going to help, it’s not meant to stop slappers.

Orst - I love you, man.

I’ll never forget Spector’s comments when he was signed:  “Flyers fans, you’ll love him.” 

They better.  Who is more of a heart and soul guy than Lappy….

Loved him on the Kings.  Baadaaasssss.
