I take a handball, or tennis ball, or whatever I have handy that bounces...throw it off the ground and against the wall and catch it. Then I throw with the other hand, repeat. (I realize you aren't going to catch a puck with your blocker, but getting your hand in the right position is the point) I make sure to follow the ball with my eyes going into my hand, which is what you should do with a puck. I do this at work all day.

I'm sure there are more sophisticated drills out there, but thats what I do. Good luck.
thanks a lot.
actually i read somewhere earlier thats what marty brodeur does.
and he problably has the best glove ever

thanks again
