I was talking to my friends the other day and discussing what position I would play if I could manage to drag myself out on the ice and remain upright long enough to play, and my answer took no hesitation whatsoever.
I'd be a goalie.
I was a catcher for a few years when I played baseball, and that's the closest comparison I could come up with. I was a damn good catcher, and I think I could throw my body in front of the puck enough to be a serviceable goalie, assuming I magically acquired the skills necessary to ice skate in the first place.
As good as I think I could be, there's no way I could come up with a save like this one. Last night, Carey Price committed what the folks over at The Score referred to as grand larceny:
I think I might call it highway robbery, but let's not argue over semantics.
