Well, that pic is cool, no doubt, but it's also a bit misleading if you just go by that. Desjardins is in a super-mini crouch, and you could put him in a regular sized net and it would still look a bit funny. But when the goalies are standing normally, the nets don't actually look all that outrageous.

The first day of the rookie tourney, not a single person I spoke to all game noticed there was anything different about the nets. You don't really think to look at them closely, it's kind of ingrained in your mind that the nets are the nets and they don't change, but still, it's not as big a deal from a fan's perspective as that cool picture makes it seem.

Anyway, now I've read today that I agree with Al Strachan on something. What is the world coming to??!?!
