    I like them all, it's a good angle to shoot from. The last one I would have cropped tight on the two players, right over top of the player in front. You should be able to make a decent horizontal out of it, if it's not already a big crop.

    Nice. I can't believe how big the goalie equipment is now, incredible.

    Right. In pic #2, the goalie covers the whole angle... Crazy.

    I saw on NHL network there is talk of making the goals bigger to accommodate the larger pads.

    Great photos, those lime green goal page really stand out in photo 2.

    I can't see them making the goals bigger...they talk about it, but that would instantly put an asterix on every scoring record they have. I think that making the goalie equipment smaller is a better and more likely scenario. I also think they should stat allowing kicked or even hand batted pucks as legit goals.

    Anyway, nice shots. Great capturing of the action, I love seeing the puck in the air by the goalie.

    The exposures could be a bit more consistent. Big difference in exposure between the first and second, for example.

    For the most part, you can shoot an entire game at the same exposure settings, unless you want a different DOF for some of them.
