I read in the Buffalo News this past saturday that Tallinder is wearing it, because of a player who died under similiar circumstances, in wake of the Richard Zednik injury, in his native Sweden. Even though he is playing in the States for the Sabres, he also said that the neck guards are mandatory back in Sweden for all hockey players, whether it's junior or international competition. For sure, I think it's a good move. Now, I would like to see a visor rule approved. Too many high-sticking incidents can occur.

I am glad that Tallinder is wearing one. More players should follow in his footsteps so that nothing like what happened to Richard Zednik and former Sabre Clint Malarchuk happens again. Another thought - Maybe the NHL should make it mandatory to wear one.

Give me a break!!! The team is playing like crap and this is news? I do not think so. How about playing like your life depended on it, who gives a rats behind if you are wearing a neck guard. As a fan I want you to make the playoffs. Peroid!!! Keep that feel good crap for the liberals on TV for time fillers. Now pull your head out of the clouds and get focused on your game. Lindy get some duct tape and use it on your players, the only time they can remove it is to say,"I suck and must play better for the fans."
Lindy, this is it for you my friend, if you renew or try to ask for a contract with this team, I think you need to get your head examined. There are too many talented teams out there who are not afraid to spend to keep top notch players. It was nice to have you here. Enjoy your final months in Buffalo.
