Most goaltenders who prefer butterfly techniques also seem to prefer longer legpads, because they cover more area on the ice between the legs when down.

Most goaltenders who prefer to stay on their feet seem to prefer the shorter legpads because the additional blocking area is already covered by the pants, and longer pads lead to a decrease in mobility.
