I'm not a superstar by any means but I can create some offense here and there, especially if I'm with other skill players. The problem is that there are some guys on my team that have no business playing hockey. I mean they're pretty awful. Nice guys though.
So, how do you play with really bad linemates? Its kind of hard to score 3 on 5.
With bad players as linemates better forget the scoring sheet.
Be the leader and teach 'em the game by playing it.
Just stickhandle a bit and let the oppoents chase you. That will open
the space for the other guys and just set them up.
Sooner or later they will learn where to go and what to do.
There is no short term way to make them a scoring threat It's just up to you
there are no bad players there are just bad coaches and leaders.
