Couple of good points there, Mr. Bugg. Contrary to popular belief, trying to stand a guy up at the blueline isn't always the smartest (or safest) play.

If you do concede the blueline, always remember that the boards are a defenseman's best friend. Play your angles properly, and 90% of guys will try to take you to the outside. Make the boards work against them. Give them no option other than to try to take the puck deep. Once they choose to go that route, use your body and the boards to create a bottleneck. Even works in a non-checking league because the guy's basically running himself into the glass.
