Typically, a defense men's shoulder pads would be this:

anyone?
There is a difference. The shoulder pads for defensemen are noticably bulkier and protect more. That being said, I wouldn't necessarily say they are designed specifically for defensemen, so much as for levels of protection. I'm a skating defenseman, and I wear a pretty small set of pads and have had no problems at all with them.
