Force goalies to use more athleticism or whatever and you'll see many straining and pulling muscles. Life of a goalie isn't as easy as everyone wants to believe it is.
Seriously? That's your argument against trimming chest protectors, pants, and thigh rises? Also, get off your pedestal. I've been a goaltender for 20 years, very recently spending 4 between the pipes at a Division I NCAA school, as well as trained with Scrivens and Quick. So don't play the "you just don't understand" card.
You and I both know what thigh rises are for. You and I both know what half the foam on a chest protector is for. You and I both know what the inner thigh blocks in goalie pants are for. It's not for safety. Let's get rid of them and see how the game evolves, eh?
