thirty second soapbox: visors

Issue: Visor use in the NHL. 
For or against?: For. 
Why?: Because maybe they make it harder to see, but so does a hockey stick through your face. 
Solution: Make visors mandatory. Even if players whine. 

Exhibit A: 

Exhibit B: 

Exhibit C:

Most recent incident: Brooks Laich taking a puck to the face in the Oilers game that missed his eye by about a quarter of an inch. 

Personal bias: I have an eye injury phobia, and I certainly don't want to see anyone lose an eye when I'm watching sports.
