Honestly, from a goaltender's point of vue...
If you're not totally sure you're going to block the puck and have it deflect AWAY from the net into a harmless zone, then don't do it. Especially if it's a shot from the blue line or beyond the hashmarks in a non-dangerous zone.
If anything, from that distance, use your stick instead of your body, because at least we can still see the puck that way.
When in close, avoid using your stick to block shots as you may ultimately deflect the puck towards the net.
