I think people are confusing the role that the goaltender has in moving the puck with the role the defense has with moving the puck and are completely underestimating the communication aspect between the goaltender and the defenseman.
90% of the time, moving the puck for the goaltender means stopping it behind the net, setting up the break out from there, or moving it quickly to a corner AWAY from the forechecker, Quick is excellent at that.
The remaining 10% is where everyone gets the idea he is poor at moving the puck, when he is required to use 2 hands on his stick, he is inept at that and needs to practice that, that does not mean he is not effective at moving the puck though.
