This. Only time I've been stung by blocking a shot was when my skate was sideways and it hit my ankle. Otherwise I'm square to the shot. I don't have particularly good pads either.

Now I also don't block shots when I'm 15 feet away from the puck. I've never blocked a shot that has gone above my pants cause I'm just tight to the puck. I'd get worked if I took a shot to the mid section with my crappy chest protector.
