No, rebound control is instinctive, drilled & grilled into any piece of meat worth his salt. From the blocker, pad, skate, glove, wherever. You keep the puck in the play and you keep it out of the danger zone. This is not top secret. A simple primary to being an effective, responsible & conscientious Goaltender. You face far more than "4 or 5 tough chances" in a game, you face dozens, and you either take the Bull by the Horns or, you fail, crater, collapse.
I was talking specifically about Brodeur, who has clearly faced less difficult chances per game over his career than any NHL goaltender I have seen.

Send me a copy of your autobiography when its done. I'm sure it will be a great read!
