Will be curious how you load your hockey equipment in the car. I just load my bag in the back seat and throw my sticks on top of it, angled over to the front passenger seat. Much easier than getting the bulky bag into the trunk, probably even more so in your case as a goalie.
I fold the seats down and put my main bag and sticks in through the seats. Then toss my pad bag on the remaining space on the back seats. Not as easy as tossing in the wife's AT4X, but way more fun to drive.
