Morning Line- Patrick Roy

I don’t know if I would make the net much bigger, but I would maybe make the goal posts smaller. Then, every time it hits the post, it goes in. That makes a huge difference, because there’s a lot of crossbars and posts hit in a game.

“If we want to get the scoring up a bit, I think that would be a good way.”

-Patrick Roy, head coach of the Colorado Avalanche.  More from Roy, mostly on the Avalanche from Frank Seravalli of TSN.

Does anyone track how many times per-game the pipes are hit? I’d be curious if it is even close to enough to make an impact on overall scoring trends if you assume each post hit ended up a goal.

If it were enough, shrinking the posts still doesn’t mean all those posts end up goals. Some would still ping back out. So then it would be about even examining the geometry of the pipes to maximize the likelihood that pucks that hit them take an angle that heads behind the goal line.
