    They take passes in certain unique situations, but not like in soccer. A soccer equivalent to hockey would be the neutral zone is clogged and there is a loose puck. A player on team A recovers the puck and sends it back to their goalie to regroup. This isn't something that happens with any real frequency in the NHL. The times where a goalie is passed to is usually only when there is a play in the defensive zone where there is a single attacker pressing a player who just gained possession and a quick pass over to a goaltender relieves that pressure with very little risk.

    Thx for sharing your thoughts guys. Ice surface is a challenge and certainly worthy of being responsible for a disastrous result. That said, in all other cases a pro goalie should be able to handle the pass and make one. (Lundy is the exception of course 'cause we love him.) I was always hoping Talbot would become that innovator for us. Anyway, I'm done with this idea. LGR!

    Brodeur was pretty involved prior to the trapezoid . Now, the risk of the penalty discourages that play.
