Did not know it was a safety issue. And if that is the case then I'm cool with skate staying on the ice amendment.

Though I do wonder that if goalie safety issue comes from way back when goalies wore relatively little padding and has since become outdated.

Nah, this league does not need less goals, and certainly not more disallowed goals.
