I think that's the main reason. Goalies started having huge goalie, chest and shoulder pads in the early 1990s.
But for example, they're always showing that 1987 Canada Cup goal by Lemieux. He shoots it from practically the blue line and the Czech goalie is 10 meters out of his goal, and we're supposed to believe that this is an impressive goal.
