All equipment should be reduced

Again, the same question is asked: Do you think goalie equipment should be smaller?

What about the rest of the players?

Graphite sticks help players shoot the puck a lot harder. Over-sized shoulder and elbow pads are like weapons that cause head injuries to opposing players.

Goalie equipment is bigger to offer more protection. If the NHL wants to reduce goalie equipment they must look at all positions.

The question should be: Do you think hockey equipment size should be reduced all around?
