If you push across in the butterfly and your other blade touches the ice you'll fly over yourself and potentially break an ankle/leg. That's also assuming everyone plays butterfly... if you don't there's no way you should be using a 3/8 cut.

I'm not saying you can't get them done that sharp, I'm saying for a shop to give you a 3/8 cut out of the box on a new pair of skates is very drastic and would explain every problem the OP is having.
I agree with this. It is drastic if you're talking about goalies as a whole group, rather than special requests.
