How much does goalie equipment actually "protect" the GOALIE?

Except for the catching glove, where Giguere uses one of the smallest in the league. Hey, if the glove is too big, and goalies are making, "great glove saves," all the time, that's far more confidence-draining than not being able to hit the top corner vs. the butterfly, where a typical player won't score more than a couple times a year.
