Strategy is how you manipulate/ adapt everything you are learning to stop the puck.
What do you do to stop the puck in various situations?
Strategies can be conscious and/or subconscious.
Ian Clarke says that technique alone will not translate into elite goaltending. Technique is just one of the 7 components of elite goaltending.
7 Components of Elite Goaltending:
Athleticism. The goaltenders natural ability to athletically play the position.
Competitiveness: If have the be the fiercest competitor on the team.
Instinctive-ability: The ability to break from structure. The ability to find a creative solution under pressure. (Best Saves of 2018-19 NHL Season)
Reactivity: The ability to react.
Technical: Structural mechanics to the position.
The ability to put these different elements into your own recipe for success. (source: INGOAL RADIO PODCAST EPISODE 34: IAN CLARK)
