Do Teams Wait Too Long to Pull the Goalie?

I admit that for late power play, in my opinion they should.
And when they trail by two they wait far too long also, 4 minute left, you have a power play and puck control, pull the goaltender.
The fact that you open yourself to the critics more is probably a big factor in this, more than actual study by the coaching staff (the nobody lost their job for buying an IBM factor).
Would like to see some strange nhl coach pull their goalie in 5-3 when the score is even. Would be very intertaining.
But yeah the ability to roll good player during all this time (and having your timeout available) is probably a big factor to consider.
