I try and ask the goalie what he wants to warm up with. More often than not they just want a couple low slappers or some wristers from the point or faceoff circle. The guy or girl, is just stretching out. Theres no need to do any huge dekes. Not to mention at stick and pucks they are stopping pucks non stop, don't wear them out before they even get warmed up
Stick and puck is practice for both parties. Hard shots, dekes, top shelf- if you as a goalie are not okay with that, you should not be there. Shooters need practice too, and those events are exactly where that kind of thing is supposed to happen. If the goalie comes into the net in the middle of the session, the shooters aren't going to stop their practice for him. Nor should they. If they don't feel ready to deal with a shot or deke, they can just let it go.
