I think I basically played it the way you're supposed to, so eh. Only reason I was thinking that is because at this level it was probably less likely he'd get a solid pass off and that the other guy could get an accurate shot off versus him just getting the clear shot.

Sucks about the injury... definitely agree with you, the ice was real bad. I didn't stick around after my game to see yours and the play, but playing the pass was the right thing to do. Obviously it's the generally correct way, but also I played on the Bees a couple of seasons and they all play really well together. They're one team I would expect to be successful on that pass most times. They certainly exploited it against us the last time we played.

I'm not sure when you play the Silverbacks next, but if you want, introduce yourself. I'll be the D man in the bright blue helmet.

In a 2-on-1 scenario at my level I almost always play the shooter as well. The odds of someone making a good pass, the other guy receiving the pass, and the guy receiving the pass also getting a good shot off are very low. The odds of the puck carrier just coughing up the puck under pressure are way higher. That being said I scored off a beauty pass in a 2 on 1 last night so it's not perfect. 9 out of 10 times I'm flubbing that play though.

Playing the top team in the D Division tonight (my former team) who has a player coming back from a 7 game suspension from fighting. It could get ugly out there tonight.

I play low level and for 2 on 1's I start off about midway between them trying to cut off the pass but as they get closer I crowd towards the puck carrier.

why in the gently caress would you pay a bunch of money to play low rent adult rec hockey and then get in a fight and get suspended from playing hockey that you paid for

Probably because it's the only place a needle-dick rear end in a top hat can take out his aggression at people without immediately going to jail for beating his wife a third time.

I get to play against a nice lady tonight whose idea of defense is to hook you right in the crotch and waterski down the boards.

Just had a dude in last weekend's mixed-skill tournament get kicked out in the first period of the second game for hacking on the ringers, smacking one of them in the bridge of their nose with his stick, cross checking one of the girls on our team in the facemask and dropping slurs to everyone within earshot. He was drafted in my (garbage level) round.

He paid around $350-400 for not even two games and a jersey.

Drew Stafford and Brock Nelson showed up to the pro skate today. Didn't have the camera at that end but thankfully caught this.

That save is impressive.

He should have just finished backhand. Too many notes Mozart.

I thought so too but in the video if you watch the slow replay the puck rolls up on him so it was much "safer" to try and dunk it which gave me time.


*content edit*

Before that skate all those guys were talking about how great the ARP Wave system is, I think a number of them had purchased their own (they're not cheap). Has anyone here actually used one before?

If recovery is causing you to not play to your potential, it sounds like...yes?

I don't think the average SAS hockey player is being held back by recovery ... just sayin.

No see I was actually injured in childhood before I even started skating so this expensive therapy will unlock my true potential.
