Apparently JS Giguere is still in the NHL, because he's unhappy about it. Just like in 2010, the last time they cut down on pads, I've seen about a dozen posts saying Henrik will stink now and that his only success has been cheating with illegally sized pads.
No word on how cutting down the size of legal leg pads would affect a goaltender who was already allegedly using illegal ones, though.
Pretty obnoxious to listen to these geniuses who think Hank will suck. It's probably not going to affect many goalies in all honesty, maybe guys like Biron who don't get their 5 hole closed up fast enough.
