From Scott Burnside at ESPN:
Anyone who’s spent any time around National Hockey League rinks understands that hockey players are for the most part considerate, thoughtful people. There are many who are forward-thinking, articulate players and who can expound on any number of topics. Which makes it all the more mystifying when we see something as ghastly as Philadelphia Flyers captain Chris Pronger take a stick to the eye and learn that he will miss two to three weeks with an injury that could have been significantly worse and those same players remain moot on such an important issue.
Worse, how can a group of professional athletes have remained moot on this same health and safety issue for so long? The fact players have resisted efforts to impose a mandatory introduction of visors.
