From a strategic stand point the white pads or pads that the majority is white would be better. This is because when a shooter is looking at the net has a harder time distinguishing the difference of the pad compared to the net and boards behind the goalie making it harder for them to see the "holes". When using a pad with a lot of color it is easy to see the contrast between the pad and largely white backdrop.

Depending on your goaltending style you might select different color patterns to influence a shooter where they will shoot. For example, if you are a strong butterfly goaltender that covers your 5 hole well, you may want to get a pad that is predominantly white on the outsides of the pads and has color on the inside. This will frame the five hole and draw the shooters attention to the hole, where they will hopefully shoot.
