Yeah, I don't think a picture of a goalie with his feet on the goal line is really an accurate representative of a relative size of goalie gear to the net. In fact any pictures can be kind of deceiving because of perspective and distortion. Look at these two pictures:






Different lens focal lengths and perspectives can make determining relative measurements from a photo a pretty inexact science. Obviously that's an extreme example because they're not both straight on shots, but if Brodeur has his heels on the goal line and was hunched over like Dryden in that Team Canada picture there'd be a ton of net open.
