NHL teams are complaining about Anaheim goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere’s pad size again (l:laexaminer;p:laexaminer).
The league compares game video to digital photos which seems kind of hard to me. Why not just randomly measure 12 goalies a week or something? This way you can easily tell if a piece of equipment is too big.
The Times suggests the interest in Giguere’s pad size is tied to his recently improved play. And with a 4-10 record and 2.70 GAA, it is pretty easy to make the argument that if Giguere is using larger equipment, it should have come out weeks ago.
