You're joking right? Look at the size of the cheater on that glove... what part of the body is that protecting?

Nobody is talking about going back to old pads, we're talking about going back to goalies wearing pads for protection rather than making saves. Pads are lighter and protect better than ever, they don't need to be that big.

Boy do we have a lot of goalies around here

How the hell would you get save percentages back down to 'historic averages' anyways... I guess maybe make the goalies wear shock collars?
What's delusional about it?

If you keep reducing the area of the net goalies cover then save percentages will keep coming down. Not a hard concept at all to grasp.
