Indoor How do you think the goalie's role will change with the new rules?

    I think we will see goalies playing much higher, more as a defender than a goalie.

    At first I thought I'd be marked up as a fifth defender all the time, but then I thought a bit more...

    Perhaps the luxury of leaving an attacking player high wont be there anymore - you're reducing your numbers to get the ball out of defence substantially if you have one hang high. If this is true, it seems like I'd actually be in my goal more than I was under the old rules!

    More like basketball I think - everyone will be forward then everyone back on a turnover...

    Considering the massive risk we take with our gear outside of the D, I can't see how our role can change all that much...perhaps just a few more 1v1 to contend with and LOTS more shots to stop!

    I'm starting to step up my fitness now for an indoor season starting in October. I think I'll need it!

    Hmm i hadn't thought about it that way, there is truth to the words you write Stretch.
