    Rule changes for goalies?

    This is just a quick thought. I haven't put a lot of thought into so I would be curious to hear what others think. The purpose would be to protect goalies but also not let them roam around worry free. What if, for lack of a better phrase, a second crease was created where the goalies could roam around and not be touched but if they played the puck outside of that second crease they could be hit like any other player on the ice? They could get rid of the trapezoid. The second crease would be a semi circle starting at the back end board (approx where the trapezoid hits the wall now) out to about 10 feet in front of the existing crease and around to the back boards. Current crease rules would remain the same. This way goalies with some stickhandling skills can still use them while protected from hits inside the second crease, but are fair game outside the 2nd crease. Thoughts?

    they already took the stick handling skills away from goalies. The trapeziod is there for one reason and one reason only. Martin Brodeur. Though Turco was pretty good at it to, it's put there to prevent him from getting dump ins and clearing them out, hopefully adding more offense to the game.

    Yah, that's the idea, but I really like the offense that gets generated when a goalie is wandering around in the corner - and the puck isn't there.
