I'm pretty sure I saw someone on our blue line using that stratagy last season to get the goalie moving and the guy in the slot a low rebound shot or stuff in.
That was my first reaction as well. Counting them as such would mean that Sauer being so high on the list would make sense as well, because I definitely noticed him doing that last year. It's a move that Marc Staal does pretty well, so I wouldn't be surprised if Sauer sees it as a useful skill to hone.
