If you are complaining about the mobility of modern shoulder pads, you have not tried on the pads made in the past few years.
The low to mid level Reeboks and Eastons have excellent coverage, low pro caps, and are not bulky or restrictive. Not a big fan of Bauer or Warrior personally. Haven't seen the new CCM's.
I like my Bauer shouldies, but I had to take off just about every piece of optional padding. The bicep guards in particular are annoying.
