Does it even count as a good hockey game if there isn’t at least one good fight, a puck to the grill, and some spillage of crimson bodily fluid on the ice? (Sarcasm.) I’m no different than most in that I enjoy a healthy brawl. But can we please mitigate the danger?

Why aren’t NHL players in favor of wearing visors to better protect their mugs? The NHL is the only notable hockey league that does not mandate that their players wear visors.

Approximately 73 percent of the players choose to don the protective gear. Others still refuse to do so. Is it a badge of honor to have a puck encounter that leaves you with a nice battle scar, i.e. a missing tooth or a screw-nose? Could it be that those (who don’t wear the visors) have egos that are bigger than their brains? (Just kidding, Dinger.)

On the Kirk and Dinger Morning Show, our brain trust weighs in on the hot topic.
