nice tips. If I'm doing bad faceoff wise through the game, sometimes I will try to box out the other guy to change it up. Another one is if its a defensive zone draw, you can push the opposing players stick real hard and force him to draw it back too far, out of the zone. That one can make you look foolish if you're not good at it though, but it's another thing.

There's also several ways to read the opposing centers body to tell exactly what he is going to do, but I'm not too good at that. Maybe someone else can touch on it. This I would assume can help you decide if you want to try and box out the player (if he's presumably going forward and through you I guess) or if he's trying to win it clean back, etc...
