The really obvious one if you play that style is to really work on keeping your flexibility. Virtually every reflex goalie the NHL has ever seen wind up retiring because of flexibility injuries (groins, hips or hammys).
The other suggestions are good.
Above all else do not change your style if it works for you. And don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You can borrow elements of those styles to help problem areas of your game, but I am very firmly against goalie coaches and schools who are churning out clones. Fundamentals are the same regardless of style, and each goalies style is as individual as he is.
