Simple. Shoot high and it's a goal. Especially glove hand.
If you haven't, check out Josh Howard's post below.
I assume you mean "cheater" as in he tries to predict what the attacking player will do? Because otherwise I see no cheating, he's within the pad rules and frankly Howards pads are the exact same size, they'll both have 38"s (35+3"s or whatever). He also has a super wide stance which means down low, if he can see it, it's not going in. His glove sucks though yeah.
@Reddy goalies should be making big saves; not Reebok.
@Twig @Reddy Sure but what do you suggest? Gloves now are tiny compared to anything before, and likewise pads are as small as they've ever been, and length up the way really isn't all that beneficial other than 5-hole stops, which I admit would be easier for shooters. They certainly couldn't go much thinner, at 11" they're actually not very wide. I think goalie chest armour needs some development, right now to get the right protection they need to be huge, so I think they need to work on getting that stuff more body-hugging.
@Reddy @Twig small guys will always be penalized, though. shawn hunwick would have an NHL contract right now if he was 6' tall. just make leg pads cover the top of the knee and that's it. also ban composite sticks. and helmets. and colored leather equipment. BROWN ONLY! ok, maybe those last two are a bit much.
@Twig @Reddy Yeah, but theyre doing it within the rules, you can have a 38" pad nowadays. I wear 35" with no extra thigh rise, but Howard/Crawfor are probably using the same with an extra 3" on the thigh. Some guys need it (Gustavsson) and some really don't. Maybe some kind of individual fitting is needed or something, but then again why should small guys be penalised? Tricky.
