He looks like he's a graphic in NHL94...

white ones look the best and as if they are not made of fischer-price plastic (no pun intended)

Wrong. In fact, it was an optometrist from Ottawa who wrote a letter to Marc-Andre Fleury telling him that wearing yellow pads was a bad idea, because of the contrast thing. Fleury never consulted a psychologist, not that I'm aware of anyway. Here is the link to the story :

You don't need to be an eye doctor to know that, it's plain logic. It is obvious that the increased contrast between the ice/net and the pad color makes things easier for the shooter.

By the way, I too am an optometrist and I hated Price's new pads the second I saw them for the first time. They look cool, but are playing against him....

Seriously, I'm amazed that no goalie has tried it yet. The net pattern idea is very good in theory. It certainly brings some confusion, especially when the shooter only has a split second to decide where he will shoot.

My bad I was told by a friend about the psychologist bit and was just passing along what I knew regarding Fleury's pads. But yeah I really love the netting Idea, you should email him! However maybe theres an NHL rule about patterns and colors on the pads and blocker?

Please, ****, the whole colour thing is overrated really, look at Fleury this year, he's been brutal with his all white pads.
Yea, a 2.75 GAA and a .911 SV % with a less then stellar Pittsburgh team, while also being among the upper half of the league in Shots Against is oh sooo brutal..
