One thing I think the entire team could learn from Homer, however, is to shoot as soon as the puck is on your stick. Homer isn't taking a lot of wristers, but when he does, they're coming right off the stick faster than they got there. This is one area where the Wings need to improve - someone needs to have the balls to pull off some consistent one-timers (Hank, I'm lookin at you buddy).
I've noticed that Homer has done this quite a bit this year and has scored at least a couple goals this way. The funny thing is though that half the time when he fires the puck right away is he often seems to be off balance when he takes his shot. I swear in the cases where the puck goes in the net the goalie underestimates Homer and thinks there is no way he can get an effective shot off balance the way he is, and then BOOM its in the net LOL
