If by perfect position you mean flopping around like a fish out of water then yes. The guy spent WAAAAAAY to much time down low in the butterfly, thus affecting his movement speed, and probably why he also seems to lose track of the puck very easily thus exacerbating his horrible rebound control. He also absolutely fails at regaining his stature in net once hes gone down. He will just roll around and flail for a minute and looks really really silly for a good 1-2seconds every single time.
Also I would argue that its easier to teach a goalie to not over commit on the movement aspect of things, than it is to teach one to have better reflexes. In other words niemis glove probably aint getting any faster, but griess definitly has a good shot to learn to control his movements better.
You gave me an instant reminder of the goal he let in while he was doing his crab walk
