I'm not against trimming the knee rise, but IMO it's unsure if it will actually increasing scoring. Goalies with wider pads/rise will close their five-hole slower (although the gap will be somewhat smaller) and move laterally slower which leaves the gap open for longer. Guys like Thomas and Bryzgalov who favour smaller pads get beat upstairs or stick side a lot more than five-hole, while guys like Lindback and Rinne let pucks squeak through the gap often.
