New Look To The Cage

The NHL will be testing out brand new nets as early as the preseason. The dimensions will not change (6ft x 4ft), but the deepness of the net will be altered. The new design will test out a goal that is 40 inches deep as opposed to 44 inches and it will also feature a clear plastic top and a verification line 3 inches behind the goal line. All of these changes, according to the NHL, will be better suited for video replay review. In fact, a high-definition camera will be inserted into the plastic top of the net. Several teams have already approved this new change.

The above was league news. The following will be related directly to the Bruins. Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo now regrets making those comments regarding Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas during the Stanley Cup Finals. Luongo made a comment about how Thomas' playing style of "living on the edge" would be costly and that he would have made a save on a shot that Thomas allowed a goal. Would Luongo be saying these comments if the Canucks won the Stanley Cup? Very doubtful. We should all take his comments with a grain of salt.
