Default Stickhandling Defensemen

The defence has to stop handling the puck and move it faster. In midget hockey they had time but in Junior they need to move it faster. Disappointing that the coaches have not improved this all year.

They won't improve on anything that the coaches turn a blind eye to.

What drives me crazy is the first move by a number of defensemen and we all know who is guilty is to start stickhandling instead of moving the puck. This team is undersized and speed is their strength. Moving the puck too slowly negates that strength.

If only there was a league before the OHL where players could learn the basics so coaches didn't have to teach such things at the major level. Little gems such as:
  • Don't stick-handle when you are the last man back
  • Don't pass across the blue paint
  • Simple is often best: pass or glass
  • Be sure of your pass and your receiver

K.I.S.S Don Cherry would be proud.

At this point, the Dogs are going to make the playoffs, but that’s only because of the mediocrity of their division. They’re not going anywhere once the playoffs start, I’m thinking more out-in-5 or maybe 6 at best. The Dogs are poorly organized, and I’m sorry, but if it’s mid February and we’re still talking about a team that flat out cannot execute a breakout of their own D-zone, this is not going to end well.

...or that has difficulty on multiple occasions, finding the back of the net on a lengthy 5 on 3
