I've always felt like the only players who are afraid to make those mistakes are the ones who are prone to making them (which is the obvious part) and the ones who are prone to making them are the one who aren't quick enough on their feet. I was always quick on my feet, and yes I've made the wrong call at times and gotten beaten. But that confidence of being able to play aggressive only comes if you have enough confidence in your skating.
