There's no goalie better at the top of his game than Quick. So much fun to watch.
RE: goal scoring, when you play at the professional -- regardless of the sport -- team defenses figure out a way to adapt. Sometimes it takes the body as a whole a season or two to change. We're going to see it in football (and we have seen it) with the pass-happy league. In hockey post-2005, it took teams a while to figure out how to play D and defend 'cleanly.' The result now is all of the shot-blocking and stacking people in front of the net that Beef pointed out. If the league reacts strongly like it always does, I don't think it will do much long-term. There will just be another spike and then teams will figure out how to defend another way. That's why the reactionary stuff is stupid.
For the first time (and probably also one of the last time during my visit to the USA) I get to watch the playoffs hockey on NBC (can't get anything else than broadcasting channels right now...) and maaan this is so exciting. Love the NYI arena, sounds so loud
