    All any goalie needs is the ability to skate backwards four feet and a good split.

    I call bull*** to your bull****, or maybe I just recognize your sarcasm.

    During public ice skates, I sometimes mess around in the goal crease, imitating a goalie.

    Just shuffling across the crease and maintaining balance in the crouch sans gear was tough.

    Then there's the one skate quick slide across the crease. Again tough, again sans all the gear.

    I was watching NHL Live today and a kid wrote in asking what was the one thing to work on to hopefully make it to the NHL. Without hesitation EJ Hradek said skating was the top priority.

    I'm not really sure you can compare skating skills between goalies and players. Aside from the obvious difference in skates, the positions demand different skills. Bogey, were you wearing player skates and trying to shuffle? Because in goalie skates it shouldn't be too difficult. From what I know goalie skates have a thicker blade and lower profile which gives it more stability and easier movement forwards and backwards. This of course sacrifices lateral movement. And I think what you're referring to is a "T-push".

    I always impart to anyone who wants to play hockey to work on three things . . . skating, skating, and skating. Isn't that clever? I just made it up.

    ...but I do say, don't worry about anything else until you have your skating down.
    Learn to skate like Michelle Kwan before you grab a stick.

    I was wearing the skates I normally use to play, which are not goalie skates. Good point. Still, I would recommend to anyone who wants to be a goalie to also get the skating down first . . . wearing goalie skates, of course.

    Yep, T-push, I've heard that term before, even though I've never played goal.

    I would like to try playing goal sometime, but that requires a whole other level of commitment that I'm not willing to pursue at this time.
