While I am not really a one man show, as my skating isn't the fastest, I use my smarts (which I have loads of) to read the play, which is why I focused on making plays so much. I am liking the idea of trailing the play as it lets me keep on the defensive and still be able to dictate the play like I can. I think I'll do some stick and puck or shooting pad practice when I get a free night to get my shot off quicker. I guess going from passer to shooter isn't the best call but playing a more hybridized role should help the team more.

In terms of skill around me, most players are pretty quick (our most talented players are playing D) and can usually keep up with the play. They are a bit lazy and tend to lay off the forecheck favouring the back check. This gives our team a bit of a defense first mentality, but scoring 2 goals a game is not acceptable for this level of hockey.

Thanks for the tips everyone!
