Spoken like a true European.
I was born in Brooklyn. I have never stepped a foot in Europe and I have no problem saying having 6 guys playing goalie at 1 time is boring as heck. I played this game for decades. I also coached the game. The players have sticks in their hands for a reason. Laying down all over the defensive zone makes the game a convoluted mess and definitely does take away a lot of the entertainment value. Can it be effective? Yes. So was the trap and that made NHL hockey boring as well. Let the guys play actual hockey.
