Summer Of Change, Smaller Goalie Equipment

from the CP at the Globe and Mail,

NHL goaltending equipment will be shrinking again soon.

Starting next season, NHL goalies will be will wearing equipment better suited to body size with strict new enforcements coming into place. Former goaltender Kay Whitmore presented the impending changes Tuesday morning, the second day of the annual GM meetings.

Whitmore says the change comes at the urging of some of the league’s top netminders who want to show it’s their skill and not the increasingly larger equipment that makes them effective.

All Pro goalies should protest if it is anything like Corey Hirsch has babbled about on Sportsnet, many times and too often

WingedRider, what do you have against Hirsch’s suggestions. They seemed to be generally lauded in the hockey community.

In Canada I never saw a good review of Hirsch’s recommendations.  Most said he went to far and I agree.

I might have missed something as I only get TSN/Sportsnet (ugh)
