Great points, this pretty much goes under defending the middle/knees bent thing but big thing I notice in my beer league when d-men make mistakes is they think at the blueline is when you need to STEP-UP on their man, but then they commit way too much and the opposition easily gets by.
Make sure when they are coming in at the blueline thats when you CLOSE THE GAP, not necessarily make a move to take the puck and get caught flat footd/goin the other way.
Also do the last point - I completely agree. Playing defense is fun.
