Blue Jackets | Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky feeling the sting with smaller chest protector
great job, nhl
Guess you might have to start catching them, eh?
as long as it isn't actually putting him at risk for injury, he's just got to learn to put up with them
If what he says is really true, that is going to put him in constant risk for injury.
Craig Anderson is doing fine and he has less natural talent than Bob, I think.
Will take a little time to adapt, I'd think. Best of luck, Bob.
is it really putting him at risk though, or does it just feel like it is? I highly doubt they'd shrink the equipment if they couldn't do it safely
Just will bring back Elliott quote.
how can people not be agreeing with the goalies here
you cant have guys standing in the net getting smashed by 100 mph shots with barely any padding on exposed parts
Goalie who let in 8 goals in one game thinks pads should be bigger.
Be more dramatic, will ya. No one's gotten injured yet, and until then, goalies won't have an argument. Oh, they're getting some bruises? Skaters get bruises EVERY game, man up.
Guess what goalies, when you push back on every potential change to your equipment then eventually people will stop caring about your opinion. If you would have learned to fight your battles instead of whining about things like the height of your pads (that protects the five hole and not any part of your body) then maybe you would have had the cache to prevent this.
Also, if only 2 goalies out of 62+ are saying this how bad can it be?
Agreed. If it is as bad as they say I would imagine more goalies will come out with this and changes will be made.
Guess it's gonna take a broken arm for people on here to believe the goalies.
"Players break arms and legs all the time, Man up!"
'Back in my day, we didn't wear any protection! I might be in a wheelchair now, but dammit, at least I'm a man!'
Interesting correlation between poor statistics and complaining about the equipment.
If it's legit (and it shouldn't be hard for them to prove their case here) then this is not only a safety issue, but also an issue which means we aren't seeing players playing at their best, which hurts the product. This should be viewed as a serious problem by the league.
John Gibson took yet another hard shot up high where they've eliminated protection and it hurt him
If you're going to be putting goalies at higher risk then you better start regulating the sticks that routinely allow 95+ MPH shots
John Gibson has complained about the equipment. Check his stats
If anything, that would lend more credence to their claims. If you actually are having the problems they're describing, there's no way you can go out and play like normal. Like he said, if you're worried about getting hurt all the time, same as if you're a skater, that's going to affect how you play in a negative way.
If they were complaining and looking unbeatable anyway, I'd be more inclined to consider it whining.
3 days before he was lit up.
Same case with Elliot, his intreview came out Before 8 goals game with Sharks.
When a single goalie gets injured by a shot get back to me.
If they want to keep pads like this, fine. Just force everyone to use wooden sticks
