How do you explain the difference in less scoring with less tug and pull and smaller goalie equipment?
Hmm, maybe more focus on defense and better coaching systems have allowed less goals not just goalie equipment and the butterfly?
I haven't looked at stats --GAA doesnt really matter to me. I'm talking about the difference in watching a game. Far more entertaining to watch a game with open ice, goalies stacking the pads, offensive plays than the current game today.
I was a goalie when I was younger -- never butterflyed --- and my knees and hips are far better for it. Does anyone know, or has any research been done on the long term affect on hips and knees on BF goalies?
