Thank You. When will the NHL do something about the ridiculous size of goalie equipment. Bernie parent took up about a third of the net. Make them actually make a save instead of just blocking the puck by taking up the whole net.
From a marketing standpoint look what happens when a goal is scored, fans leap out of their seats. Why wouldn't you want more of that? The other 3 sports leagues understand this quite well. Smarten up NHL.
