I have this idea and it is hard for me to explain why exaclty, but I think the new rules will hurt large goalies. Basically we all recall the days of Furh, Randford, Moog ect, the small goalie with great reflexes. Over time goalies have gotten bigger, equipment has gotten way bigger. Any way, two rule changes, small equipment and the smaller nets I think hurt these goalies. Reason 1 is pretty simple, bigger goalie pads, means the more you lose. 2. the smaller nets allow players to do rap around a lot quicker. Goalies will need to be much faster across the net. I think it hurts the big goalie that just plays angles well but doesn't really have the best reflexes. I for one think it is a good thing. I want to see the return of the small goalie whit great reflexes. This, sadly relates to the Oilers, if I am right it hurts dubs and Lababera. So sort of hope I am not that right.
