Because it's completely counter to Patrick Houda's description on Joe Pelletier's blog:
"quick feet," "acrobatic style," does not say "stationary" to me. Unless you mean Holecek stayed in his net a lot, but as discussed, that was the preferred method of playing against the USSR
Yes, stayed in his net a lot would be the description. Observe the impact of the trapezoid rule combined with the LWL and you will see the reason goalies do not have to have the mobility that roving goalies of previous generations did.
