I'm one of the people who recently made a goalie-related thread looking for help. I would definitely be all for an entire forum to look through to get information and such starting off.

I'd assume it's real sparse though...being a lefty golfer sucks pretty bad. A LOT of stuff just isn't available. There are some deals out there which are great (got about $400 worth of clubs on clearance for $130) but a lot of the time I just wish I was righty.

How does a 'Goalies' thread tag/prefix sound? If a poster doesn't add it properly in the OP, a mod will correct it.

Goalies that wish to only see related threads could click on the tag and it will only bring up the threads with the same tag: i.e., goalie marked threads.

It's kind of like a subforum, but without the back-end hassle involved with the database stuff...

It's not that we want to filter out Goalie stuff. We just want somewhere for us to post as a group and have that camaraderie Goaltenders share. Help each other out, share our games and show off our equipment (all goalies are crazy about their gear), post equipment for sale, share techniques, help & develop noobs... ect. I really don't want to go to the other big site (GS) to do it, I'd rather stay here. I'm sure there are more that feel the same.

So to answer... It's not what we're looking for, but better than nothing I guess. It's that much of a pain to just add a "Goalie" or "Inside the Crease" sub-forum under "The Rink"? Should be a quick fix with forum software admin.

If you choose not to do it, thanks anyways for your time. I hope you do consider it though.

Thanks

I think we should give that a shot before we go through all the trouble of making a sub forum personally.

I'm trying to do whatever it takes to convince myself to stay here without having to go anywhere else. Just keeping it real. If we have a Goalie sub forum then it's game over. I know it will explode and be extremely popular once people are aware of it. Everyone knows HF is the best hockey boards, but we all know where the Goalies tend to hangout. If there is a place for Goalies here, skys the limit.

Then I can live happily ever after and post my entire Goalie life here. lol

it's not. Also if you want to sell gear, it's nearly impossible.

What? Goalie gear is the easiest. GGSU is a god-send.

Seems like those tags are more of a pain that it's worth. Just hook us up with a sub-forum, a lot easier. Then you don't have to deal with me anymore.

So i've been thinking about trying out goalie at this point, but i am so completely lost on which hand i would go with. As it stands now i shoot right, but playing baseball my whole life i would be more comfortable with the catcher on the left hand. Having it on the right hand isn't uncomfortable, just not quite as comfortable. The only thing i really feel uncomfortable with is using a left handed stick.

Does it make more sense to go catcher on the right hand and just try to get more comfortable with it? Or should i just keep the catcher on the left hand since I hopefully wouldn't be playing the puck too often?

Catch on your hand that you would use in baseball. Hopefully we get a Goalie sub-forum and then we can help you out even more there.

Nevermind they went with the prefix thing. Bummer man.... Nobody is going to know to use it. Heck I didn't. Adds a ton more work for the mods when it could've just been moved to the sub-forum. My *****ing isn't going to help and looks like a uphill battle so I guess I'll just let it be. Peace

as the next person wrote put it on the same hand you would in baseball. Ignore anyone who tells you to test and see which hand you catch better with, that isn't the hard part, the hardest part is wielding the stick. So assuming your right hand is dominant, catch left.

yea, I catch much better with my dominant hand, but would have absolutely no control of my stick if I wore the glove on my dominant hand

The issue for me though is i do a ton of stuff left handed. Shoot pool, dig with a shovel, use a broom, eat with a fork, etc... If handling the stick is the hard part, i would probably be inclined to put the catcher on my right hand because i'd feel much more confident with the stick in my left hand.

Okay well then now that changes things. Which hand do you throw with? Or if you were playing a racquet sport such as tennis, badminton, or squash, which hand would you hold it in? That should likely be the hand you hold your stick in.

I play those with my right hand, so i should probably go catcher on the left hand then.

On a related situation, I am in a similar conundum.

I shoot right, however I also catch, and throw left (one of the reasons I don't play baseball is because I don't have 2 left hands)

I'm thinking I'd use left glove, then hold stick in right and spend a while adjusting to a left handed shot. I've always been moderately ambidextrous when it comes to sports if I focus at it, so I should manage hopefully.

step 1. grab a goalie stick and see which hand you are more comfortable holding the stick and playing the puck

step 2. buy a blocker for that hand, and put a glove on the other

step 3. make saves
