Peter Nedved: I Need Bigger Goals

30 posts in this topic

ugh... does anybody IN this thread actually PLAY goal ???

you know what.. if you're willing to stand there and get essentially with a rubber BULLET at up to 100 MPH, you can wear ALL the pads you like.. you wanna lessen the goalie gear.. then lets go back to wood stick with NO curves since they scored so much easier with those in the olden days too.. it's just another EXCUSE instead of the league just admitting and PROMOTING the fact that some of the best goalies that EVER LIVED are in the league NOW and they should promote their AMAZING abilites instead of cursing their talent each way and back !!!

If you look at a goalie today, vs. one from ten years ago the guy today is a monster.

There was a time when there would be several 50 goal or 100 point scorers, now there are very very few. Iginla led the league last year in low 90's, that's just not enough.

If you can score 20-30 goals now, you are a top offensive player. If you can score 30-40, you are elite. If your better than that, your at the very top.

Everybody's forgetting their are limits to the size of goaltenders equipment. The league checks them a couple times a year randomly.

The big thing now, is the length of the pads, there is no limit to the length. So when these goaltenders get down in the butterfly there is no gap (if played right the stick covers this area, with these overlong pads there really is no need for the stick there) just one pad running into another.

If the league wants to increase scoring there is a bunch of things it could do. Put the nets back to the old place on the ice, that would increase the neutral zone, increase the curve of the sticks but not to the 2 inch banana curves. These are a few of the things they can do without minimizing the protection goaltenders get or increasing the size of the nets.

well if there are limits, it doesn't look like the NHL is enforcing them. Or maybe they need stricter limits because you still have monsters like Snow, Lalime, Luongo, and Thibault around
