I have to agree that the Half Butterfly is a great option for the low blocker side wrister. remembering to center shift to the puck path, leading with the stick, backing up that with the half butterflied pad works very well. If you dont get enough lateral push to get the stick to the puck, you have the pad to make the save and thats normally going to rebound to a harmless corner.
I think so too ( just got back from a stick n pick session) worked on that save a lot. Definetely too fast for a skate save, half BF really is the only option. Like I said, it really is only a couple shooters that have the release that is quick enough to get me, and can barely even pick up the puck...maybe I should get my eyes checked
Thanks for the input all- feel free to add
