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

Hasek doesn't have a style at all. He's no stand-up goalie. Joseph and Belfour are both known to get down on their knees very quickly and the book on both is to beat them high. Brodeur and Turco are rarities as both play a bit of a hybrid style. Outside the circles they usually stand up, in close they butterfly.
The last of the classic 'challenge the shooter, come 3 feet out of the creaase to cut the angle stand-up goaltenders' were Kirk McLean and Sean Burke before he switched to a hybrid style.
