Defensive positioning has been horrid on every time I've played on or seen at the adult level. It's a simple concept that absolutely nobody understands or agrees upon. Half the guys are yelling from the bench to be aggressive and attack the puck carrier and the other half are yelling to stay in your position and cut off lanes. I typically play conservative and cover the man instead of the zone and it works well.
Agree with this. First forward gets the trailer which is most likely their 3rd F.
*Once the opposing team passes the red line.
