That's totally possible and I agree at this point goalies are used to having a leash. They probably wouldn't even attempt to venture into the corners very often at first might take most of a season.

I don't know who would benefit from it haven't been able to really gauge goales puck moving skills since the trapezoid was implemented. I know Hank wouldn't go too far out at least I hope not. Only three I can think of that really like to play the puck are Marty, DP, and Mike Smith.
