Apparently the above picture of Marc Staal getting a hockey puck in the eye has fwightened the wittle Staal boys, who have since run to their trainers to to bolt on little plastic shields like Europeans or something. Fittingly, this comes after their Mom said they should.

This is just the latest way The Game Has Changed for the worse, as the trio of 6’4″ monsters (Eric, Jordan and Marc) have set the precedent for other fraidy-cats who want to protect themselves from potential career ending injuries and prolong their careers by putting on something that won’t affect their actual games in the slightest.

Pff. Soft, you guys. I’ve written about this before.
