    I never understood why they don’t just hire a sumo wrestler to sit in front of the net.

    A few years back in my hometown, as part of an exhibit about the town’s hockey history, the gallery had a screen that took up one wall projecting film from helmet cams of the local NHL team at essentially life size. The view from the goalie was insane. His view was mostly screened by players but he was still stopping pucks I couldn’t even see coming. The play was incredibly fast, and the goalie was obviously reacting to things he wasn’t even looking at. No wonder goalies are considered a little off-balance…

    Yes, it’s running a large software development, and especially so when a) you don’t have the necessary authority and b) 51 other entities are changing their rules without consultation.

    There’s a great Jacques Plantes quote: “How would you like a job where, every time you make a mistake, a red light goes on and 18,000 people boo?”

    I’ve also seen a funny piece where a goalie was trying out for baseball . . . in his pads. I forget what infield position he was playing–not catcher–but it was quite amusing.

    To your point, I don’t know how they do it.
