Earlier today we posted some thoughts from Kings coach Darryl Sutter about increasing the size of the nets or decreasing the size of equipment used by goaltenders (click here to read). Both suggestions were hot topics on NHL Network Radio this morning. St Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong and Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau were in favor or the larger nets.
What does Jonathan Quick think?
“That’s ridiculous, you have to have some integrity with the game, you know?’ he said to MayorsManor following practice this morning. “Now you’re messing with rules, like the net size, that have been in place for how many years? You have to have some integrity with the game. You have to keep the nets the same. You want to create more goals? You want to make the goalie’s equipment smaller? Go ahead. If every goalie in the league has to deal with it, then it’s an even playing field. I know some guys probably won’t be happy, but it’d be the same for everybody to complain about it. But yeah, I’d say smaller gear before a bigger net for sure.”
