i believe in creating any sort of pressure for a shooter as a defender or for anyone holding the puck. but to blcok a shot must come w some awareness and intelligence.
if you dont plan on putting a full wall in front of a shot, then ur best bet might be to move so the goalie can see. i thought tgis was a big issue w anaheim ducks and some of their players last year. they gave a lot of goals last year from the outside, players got in front of shots but they looked like they didnt want to... like tgey were forced to. and so a lot of deflections occured and.ddint go there way.
if the shot is more than 12 13 feet ahead of u, and ur in the crease... i would say move but make sure ur goalies aware. speak up tell him shot and be confident w ur decision.
ask ur goalie what he prefers too
