Not photoshopped photo of McDonald at practice. We swear. 

Since it was announced last week that Andy McDonald and David Perron have been cleared to begin exercising, we've been trying to not put too much hope on either coming back and being prime contributors right away.

And then news came Monday that McDonald not only traveled with the team to Colorado participated in a full practice. Also included in the story was this nugget from Dan O'Neill:

McDonald was wearing the Cascade M11 Helmet, also known as the "Messier helmet," because former standout player Mark Messier is involved in the development of the equipment. Slightly bigger than the standard helmet, the M11 is purported to be more effective in preventing head injuries.

Now we figure that McDonald wouldn't stop with just the Messier helmet. maybe he'll try some other helmets that might be slightlyt bigger. We now present helmets we think Andy McDonald might try to reduce injuries.

Now it's a little bulky, but it's guaranteed to make the wearer's neck stronger than they ever thought possible. Only comes in green, however. Also could be used as a weapon, kind of like a battering ram. Downside, you have to take it off to get down the tunnel to the dressing room.

McDonald can get a good deal on the helmet if he mentions to the salesman that he knows his father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate. Biggest perk, it helps you skate at ludicrous speed.

Melon Head

Multipurpose model can be used as decorative centerpiece for fruit salad and is great as an extra conditioner on your hair. Downside, your team is only good a few times every 20 years.

For the full body experience, install the full face shield and you'll never feel another body check again (snow tires not included).
