I do agree that the size of the equipment and over coaching has altered the game alot.
The science is this: have huge equipment then, fall to your knees and cover the bottom of the net with your freakishly big pads and stretch your torso out to cover as much of the top as you can. Let the puck hit you and cover it.
Brilliant science. It is all crap without the freakishly big equipment. Remember a thing called the 5-hole? Doesn't exist anymore with the ridiculous pads.
