Why a right-handed shot? because a right-handed shot coming into the faceoff circle off the half wall on the left side can use his body to shield his stick from the defenseman coming in from the same half-wall.
I don't usually post, but I've been a little concerned with the level of hockey intelligence demonstrated on this board lately. It's a slippery slope and it seems there is a logjam of people sliding down this hill on their butts; while spinning in circles.
Thanks for reading.
Go watch the play on replay. Metropolis did anything BUT create what you're writing. I agree with you, when the player has talent. Metropolis used to play for the freaking Rafales for crying out loud. He's a lousy 4th line center, and should, in fact, be in Europe somewhere.
