blocking shots and shoulder pads

I play in beer league and I try to block shots (it's what I do...)

I have been wearing bulky padding thinking it protects me better. I literally don't feel a direct hit on my shinpads.

I've haven't been hit too often in the upper body but here is my question: does the additional padding on shoulder pads (I have warrior bondafides) that extends out beyond the sternum and spine protect do much at all? It' just some thin padding with no hard inserts so I'm thinking no.

The reason I'm asking is that I am looking at the ccm CL shoulder pads (absorb less sweat and hopefully stink less) and they don't cover much but I'm not sure if that is much of an issue.
