04:56 PM ET 03.21 | At the conclusion of the general managers meeting on Wednesday, it was clear that the NHL managers were focused on improving player safety. With much of the conversation surrounding equipment, hybrid icing and alterations to expanded replay, the league appears to be looking out for their players. The managers passed a vote to make visors mandatory, as well as decreasing the size of goaltender???s padding, which is believed to promote higher shot attempts. Both of these rules will not to be approved by the NHLPA before going into effect. NHLPA special assistant Mathieur Schneider believes the union will be receptive to grandfathering the visor rule.

Visors are required in today's chicken feces NHL where the meek can fling their carbon fibre wangs indiscriminantly.

Because some guy like Selleck can't come and mete out fisticuffs justice just because.
