If this truly is a goalie bible, can I take passages out of context to prove I'm the best goalie?

Finally got around to reading this. You definitely have a different play style than me but it is great to see other peoples insights and try to incorporate some into mine.

One thing I would add that you touched on a bit on the last 2 chapters but I think is worth mentioning further. Something that many goalies especially newer goalies struggle with is flipping the switch on and off mentally in a swift manner. What I mean is that about 50% of the time goalie isn't performing a consequential action and may be thinking about something else or looking down field (or even alt tabbing/changing music), without exact knowledge of where they are in the goal area. This also happens when a the puck is in a goalies half and the goalie is moving around. The ability to quickly "set" yourself and have your mouse/abilities and mind fully ready to distinguish and react to what you need to do. The difference between getting set taking 2 seconds and 1 second is huge and could stop you from giving up easy goals that you wouldn't give up if you were "set".

You can practice getting set quickly, in your downtime, by just imagining a skater (that isn't there) in a certain position and reacting and putting your goalie/mouse in the right places and readying abilities.

Ps it sounds like I mean reaction time but I'm not really talking about reaction time.

210 ms… I suck. At least I can survive with 350 ms or less, so that means if I have less than eu ping I'm good.

Love this guide, I try to read through a few paragraphs each time. One additional thing worth covering is the act of moving to the top of the crease to "cut the angle" or line of sight to the corners of the net. I use the triangular semi circle approach, but more exaggerated. The top of the triangle for me is standing just behind the top of the crease. This exposes the sides of the net more to passes and one-timers, but is effective in making it harder to get a perfect corner snipe, especially from the slot right in front of the net. If you simply stand in the middle and FF from the center of the crease, a well placed shot will make it by you every time. By moving towards the shooter you essentially make your goalie appear larger in comparison to the net:

My movement pattern is something like this:

You will always see me jump to position A after a faceoff, and turn 90 deg to expose my stick and widen my coverage area. From A, I will only ever move to point B on either side of the net, and then back to A as the puck travels back to the center of the ice. This also helps protect against crease camping as the ideal position for this tactic is as close to the shooter as possible, 90 deg offset to the direction of their possible shot. I see a lot of goals (and let in a lot myself) because of being too far back in the crease, which gives the shooter his choice of corners to aim for, reducing your decision making to a 50/50 guess and resulting in a lot of ugly evacs. Moving closer to the shooter forces the shooter to move around the goaltender, which is much easier to track and react to than a quick twitch back and forth, intended to pull you out of position unnecessarily.
Nothin' but net.

This worked pretty good like 1-2 years ago where ppl werent as experienced in front of the crease as they are now.
The main issue with running out and cutting down the angle is, that the attacker often just walks arround you.
Especially when you are using your are unable to move and the attacker can choose a corner to score on.
When you want to cover this corner while having the ff activated you'll have to boost, but this will obviously make the other corner wide open.

So most times when you go out you may not use your ff in order to be able to move and close the gaps you left behind you between you and both posts.

Tho I don't doubt that this can be effective when done correctly
