the "flying v"
 
this has been bugging me for some time. my buddies that dont watch hockey always joke about never seeing a flying V in an NHL game. but why not give it a shot?

in this thread we discuss what would happen realistically if a team that has possession of the puck...goes into the flying V formation.

The flying V requires the other team to be so confused they don't realize they can just play the body on them and they can't move without ****ing up the formation.

Basically, what team Iceland did to team USA in D2.

The two obvious ones that come to mind are:

1. They're all bunched up, so that kills your ability to move the puck, which leads to...

2. The opposing team only needs to stand up to the flying V to stop it dead in its tracks. They're all bunched up, which means there's no other spot to pass to, no place to do some fancy dangles. Thus the opposing team only needs to more or less line up along the blue line, check the puck carrier, and have a nice open break-away.

kinda what i figured as well. then an epic breakout for the defending team since the flying v is all bunched up.

Jarick 10-07-2010 01:47 PM

Or put 3 guys on the blue line and watch it all fall apart.

Ah Nomad beat me to it!

It really all depends on whether you have someone with a lasso to distract the oncoming players.

The flying V was banned due to having no realistic counter.

At a private ice game (our team vs theirs) some guys on my team tried the Flying V for the hell of it, starting from behind the net and they got to maybe the faceoff dots in our zone before it fell apart. Yeah, it lasted a whole 20 feet or so. It took just one guy to pressure and everyone scattered from the V formation. Add the hitting you can do in NHL and it would be disastrous.

That's just a modified power play breakout. Put the wingers up higher and that's pretty much how 99% of teams break the puck out on the PP.

you have to stay committed to the V, i think that was the problem. It's all or nothing. :teach2:

My team tried the flying V in an intramural game once. We were down a goal and tried it for the hell of it. I'm not sure we ever got in a proper formation and we were sort of all steered as a big blob into the boards by the time we hit our own blue line.

Funny thing is that SOMEHOW the puck wobbled around a bit to one of our guys and we ended up scoring about 10 seconds later on the same rush.

So I guess it works ;).

Man, those things are just un-freakin-comfortable to play. Plus, they have horrible neck-dive.

I just have a LP, Strat and looking for a nice blonde tele...
