Bloomington's wooden goalie

Simple knock-off of those plastic goalies we used as kids playing street hockey. It works ok with cones, but it really shines in front of a goal. You have the two corner pockets, the five-hole (split by an implied mallet), and enough space to shoot over the wheels for the top shelf. I haven't taken any photos of it in front of the goals but will try to this week. They could probably be more heavy duty, but for a price of $0 i think they're pretty good.

This definitely makes pickup more fun and practice more effective. I recommend you try it, especially if your pickup has low numbers or a wide range of skills.
