I also agree that pads are too large. Returning to the original 10" standard for width and further restriction on thigh rise will make it even easier for the elite goalies of today to further display just how weak and diluted the out player talent pool has become(NHL). They(goalies) will become even faster forcing a hybridization and further development of reaction and speed which would make watching the game even more exciting.

No more boring blocking only goalies. Its kind of crazy when you hear players talk about how great a goalie is when the guy doesnt even see the shots. He is just playing the angles and dropping. The goalie isnt that great...the out players are just that poor. In the day a 50 goal scorer was the ideal. Now everyone gets excited about a 30 goal scorer.
