Opinion: The NHL Discussing The Emergency Goalie Rule Stinks Of Toronto Privilege
The David Ayres buzz was positive for the game on a global level and trying to take away cinderella stories like this should be a crime.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


After the unthinkable happened and both James Reimer and Petr Mrazek went down with injuries on Saturday night, the stage was set for 42-year-old David Ayres a Toronto Marlies Zamboni driver to suit up for the Carolina Hurricanes. He made 8 saves on 10 shots in a 6-3 win vs The Toronto Maple Leafs. He won the hearts of the hockey world and the Leafs were left embarrassed and broken.

The story for Ayres has been awesome and has brought him to the biggest TV shows the world has to offer. The fact that they’re discussing changing the procedure wreaks of “Toronto Privilege!”. If this had happened against any other team it wouldn’t be going this far period.

I saw similar things in the AHL ( decades ago) where the Zamboni guy was the emergency goaltender.  Very cool.

Got nothing on whatever procedure change is being discussed but I watched the game and Mr Ayers was and is rightfully on cloud 9.  Good for him.
