The discussion below RE: Dominique Ware (5'7'', 250 lbs) got me thinking about one of my favorite unexploited hockey strategies.
Can someone please tell me why some team does not go and sign some morbidly obese, 700 lb guy to play goalie, give him a crave case of White Castles, and tell him to go sit in front of the net for a couple of hours? He wouldn't even need to get off the ice for intermission...the zamboni could just drive around him.
Is there something in the rules that prohibits this (equipment size, etc.)? If so, I see a winnable discrimination lawsuit waiting to happen.
Also, we need to come up with a fancy description of this goal-tending style (i.e., stand-up, butterfly). Suggestions?
