Why don't hockey teams just hire big fat guys to play goalie?

    You telling me if a guy like animalgod or even someone bigger is in front of the goal you'd be able to get a puck past him?

    He was too tall. I'm talking about a rounder guy. Like the first one only able to get out of bed. He could just lie in front of the net. No need to even move.

    I think the video pretty much answered your question.

    I'm not convinced.

    They said he covered 90% of the net, but that was with out pads. So he probably would cover the whole net in full goalie dress.

    You sweat a ton playing goalie. A lot of them lose 5-10 pounds a game. So maybe a fat guy would have a heart attack or something?

    Why don't they just get that Precious chick to play goalie and tell her the puck is a Ding Dong?

    Even better. As long as he falls down in front of the goal. They can move him at the end of the game.

    Dustin Pedroia does NOT have a 1.000 OBP.

    Exactly. That's why they should plop this dude down in front of the goal.

    I think I've proven my point.

    If anything, I would be interested to see if some minor league team pulled this stunt and see if it works.

    I don't think anybody is 4ft tall sitting down, so i think there would be enough net to hit for pros.

    He might get the puck stuck under one of his titties.

    I remember awhile back goalie pad sizes were getting out of control. I think the NHL had to make rules about how big they could go. That would have been a better solution put a fit guy in humongous pads.

    That would be cheating.

    They placed new restrictions for this season, but i don't think it goes far enough.

    I mean, c'mon.

    He looks like he's disarming a bomb in Fallujah.

    NHL wants a more offensive league. I think they are right. I'm still happy about them getting rid of the red line.

    Do you think they should ban beards?
