Except for Carbo you didn't see much of anybody blocking shots to stop pucks in the 80s. Goalies were alone and that's how it should be. That's their jobs, stopping pucks afterall.
Second thing I would do would be for goalies to not have a glove. It would be two blockers. And they in that sens would become like a player and wouldn't be allowed to ice to puck. Their jobs is blocking pucks from entering the net, right? Not necesseraly grabbing the puck.
A big glove save is the most entertaining of saves you can get. No way do they take that out of the game of hockey.
