Goalie Protection Discussed

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,
Goalie protection is a problem that has existed in the NHL for decades, not years, and it has never been successfully resolved. Now, in this salary-cap era, it is exacerbated. The goaltender is the heart of the team and as such, likely is to be among the highest-paid. But throughout the league, there are minimum-salary buzzbombs who do little of consequence but run into people. If they can take out a goalie, that's even better that taking out a star scorer.
