Gary Bettman talked this weekend of decreasing the size of goaltender equipment, and how it is a high-priority issue before next season. It's about time. We've only been talking about this for how long now? But enough talk. Do something about it.
The key, obviously, is protecting the goaltender. That can be done without resorting to the outlandish-size pads that some of these guys wear. Anyway, Brett Hull was one of the men pushing for this, and he was on the committee talking about it at the GM meetings this past February.
Something tells me when he talks, the NHL will finally listen.
