So you're saying it's possible but very unlikely for that to happen? I can see that being the case. I thought you were saying a 60 mph shot would definitely break your hand.


EDIT. I can't read.

I think you mis read his original post. He said 60 mph, without padding.


For reference, I did a study last year on gloves and found that anything past 60 mph will shatter your bones with padding. Without padding, you don't stand a chance in hockey, so luck and facing the puck the proper way is the only way these guys survive agame nevermind the season. I'm amazed the rags were able to ice a team for the full playoffs with their dumb collapse and block system.
