I have a little bit of a conservative streak. I'd like to see smaller pads for players *and* goalies. I'd also like to see a return to wooden sticks.
curious whether you feel the wooden sticks is linked to smaller equipment?

Some believe that the lighter sticks give players an advantage (since most wrist shots are almost as fast as slap-shots were with the wood sticks) and it's unfair for goalies who now need bigger equipment.

But I don't think bigger goalie equipment means more protection, they are not related at all. I'd like to see the pads not as wide, possibly shorter, the shoulder pads and arm pads smaller - but I don't see why the sticks should go back to wood. Why do you feel that way?
