Yes it really is an interesting phenomena. That since the pretty much full on conversion to the Butterfly the way the positions Coached & now played, roaming & playing the puck, being aggressive in skating out of your crease & breaking up plays before they even get a chance to get started (inhibited further with the introduction of the Trapezoid) all but a lost art. Actually discouraged. Pity. Several colors taken off the palette, no longer available, applied to the canvas. Skating & stickhandling skills amongst the past 2 generations of goaltenders abysmal. Only a few of them (Mike Smith in Phoenix for eg) capable & practiced at it.
