Not all of them mind you, but a goodly number.... and sure enough, with the exception of a few, the majority of todays goaltenders are not wearing their equipment, the equipment is wearing them. Like Don Cherry and his ridiculous triple thick over-sized collars; suit fabrications that look like his tailor found some new old stock bolts of velvet & velour that were rejected as being too ostentatious & over the top even for the interior designers putting together Graceland for Elvis Presley... in 1957.
Agreed.

When I go to WHL or NHL games and sit up close and take a close look at goaltender equipment, I find it embarrassing how big it is. It is cartoonish.

Keep the light stuff, just make it 80s dimensions.
