As part of the discussions, they should be put into any gear they are considering mandating, and shot pucks at for an hour.

Well, I'll be that guy.

Goalie equipment is way to big. They aren't talking about making the pads thinner, so this "safety" talk doesn't hold water in my eyes. They are talking about making the pads less wide. From the chest pad through the legs pads. Less area.

That not a bad idea at all. Goalie pads today are as bullshit as Ludwig's shin pads were back in the day. They aren't that big to provide more protection, they are that big to get an advantage.

I 100% believe goalie pads, all pads for that matter, should be regulated for size.

I agree with you Damned, but I am not so certain anything needs to be done in the name of scoring more goals across the board.

 

I watch the nightly score sheets and it would appear to me that we're seeing plenty of goals scored.

I'm with you on that there is enough goals already.

But look at some goalies, maybe there is a few that are big, but some goalies are big guys, so their equipment looks huge, look at Bishop, he is a tall player, and his pads look bigger, but you look at guys like Price, anything smaller and you might as well give him a players stick and make him defence!

Pfft....this again? Just a bunch of suits trying to justify their useless jobs. All is well. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Goalie Pads are regulated... and I agree with you that they should be... but I think they are properly regulated right now...

 

is there any real issue with pad sizes right now

Perhaps he'll be lobbying for bigger equipment?
