Great post, I try and do all those things, half of them I don't even think about it.

The trick of keeping your elbow tucked to mask the length of your stick is good, as is putting your stick out and directing him where you want to go with it. Especially when you cut off his forehand shot (not many beer leaguers can rip a backhand from 50 feet out hard enough to beat a goalie).

I will say if a guy has a step on me, I just try and cut off his lane by turning around and skating to cut him off at the middle.

And yep, if all my guys are out of position and I have no target, I flip the puck up and out of the zone or chip it off the glass. I'll take an icing and change rather than getting stuck in our end for two minutes.
