Goalies Quicker With Smaller Pads

from the NY Post,
Mogilny sounds less than convinced about the potential impact of the league's rules changes for the upcoming season to achieve their desired effect: to increase scoring opportunities. "I don't think you're going to see a lot more goals because of [goalies'] smaller pads," the Devils' winger said. "The pads are lighter, so the goalies are quicker. "You don't see those long shots from guys crossing the red line, the blue line, and I don't believe you're going to see that." "Just try to hit the net," Mogilny said. "I am a hole-picker, but you have to hit the net. You have to keep it simple. Hit the net."
