The only time I think a goalie showboats is when it's a soft wrister from far out, but even then, it would be technically unsound to not bring the glove hand towards the front of your body.

Seriously, how the **** do you "showboat" a 90-plus MPH slapshot????
This is exactly what I wanted to say but I couldn't be bothered to type out a long-winded explanation, thanks.
