We've found that angling the stick works AGAINST the goalie. most of the goals let in in our Novice level are from the stick being angled and the puck just riding up the stick and going between the goalie's legs. We focus on keeping the blade of the stick straight up and down to maximize the blocking effect. then again most of our kids want to drop down on their pads all the time too! we only have a couple of kids who can get up with any speed from that. Te also find that if the stick isn't right on the ice, lots of pucks just sneak through in that gap.
