Roy on pad size 

They say that comedy is all about timing, and what makes Patrick Roy's recent statements funny is that the idea occurred to him the year after he retired.

Slightly self-serving timing aside, the idea is a good one. Reducing the size of a goalie's pads from 12 inches to 10 is a good way to increase scoring without compromising a goaltender's safety.
