Haha, right on coach. Are you sure you weren't watching my beer league scrimmage last night?

Holy crap, we spent some time working on our power play, and the entire time we were trapped in our own end completely unable to get it out. Then our guys decided to play a five-man box all within about 20 feet of each other, in our end, ON THE POWER PLAY.

So I'm talking to our captains, remarking about how everyone's all bunched up, and they agree. And I say that the wingers are leaving the points wide open to get all bunched up in the corners in our end, and they agree. Then I ask if maybe we should coach them not do that, and they're too timid to say anything. Ugh.

My inclination is to take wingers that refuse to cover the man at the point and keep wanting to be as low as possible in the zone and make them centers or defensemen. And the centers and defensemen that never want to go into the corners and float near the blue line should be wingers.
