You will get scored on low far post, against decent shooters at all but the most severe angles if you try to play a stand up style in this spots.

The whole thing about goalies dropping too soon is easier said than done too. There is the cliche about whoever goes first between the goalie and the shooter loses, but that's crap a lot fo the time. A shooter with a good release will victimize your five hole if they get close enough to you while you're still up in your stance. It's a balance and a guessing game. I feel like Bob walks the line pretty well where that's concerned.
