Small, but big tips thread

Feel free to post your own or touch on anything I emitted.

-Awareness. Know where everyone is one the ice at all times and you can dictate the play when you get the puck.
-Chemistry. Develop it by studying the people you are practicing with and learning their styles and tendencies. This allows you a greater sense of knowing which areas to go to or whether or not he is a viable option to pass the puck to at certain times.
-Intensity. Every push should be as hard as you can go. Lazy play is the worse habit you can develop.
-Saucer pass. The secret to a good saucer pass is all in the spin you put on the puck. Close to the same motion as a ping pong paddle.
-Set plays. Everybody knows what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. Gives an advantage because with everyone on the same page it is harder to defend. If one of their defenders messes up it can blow the whole coverage.
-Small things are the big things. Be strong on the endboards, backcheck hard, don't dump it in to give it up look for the regroup (you should be aware where everyone is, at ALL times).
-Practice makes perfect. Work on your shot you get a better shot. Work on walking the blueline you get better at it. Any skill you practice you get better at.
