That's great, but you choose to make those sacrifices, if you chose to you could probably wear extra protection to save you some punishment. Myself, as a goalie, I'm not interested in taking unnecessary punishment and I'll wear as much protection as possible without impeding my ability to stop pucks. Like I said, I think some gear can be streamlined so its not as bulky but I really don't believe it causes a serious impact on scoring league wide.
