Studying the Goalies

From Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

...Wednesday’s meeting will focus on examining the “configuration and dimensions of goaltender equipment with respect to safety and performance.” Any changes to the rules governing said equipment that are deemed warranted by the group will then go to the Competition Committee for consideration.

The guys charged with redefining the fine line between excess padding and protection is an interesting one. GM’s Doug Risebrough, Brett Hull, Jim Rutherford and Garth Snow—the latter two being former goaltenders—make up the NHL contingency while the NHLPA’s representation consists of shooters Dany Heatley and Mike Cammalleri and stoppers Martin Brodeur, Rick DiPietro and Ryan Miller.

That is a diverse and knowledgeable collection, but what can we seriously expect from their efforts?
