Having to pop a fast moving puck off the boards can be difficult especially when you have a forechecker bearing down and you're receiving it on your backhand. Having to get it off the boards, in a position to pass eats up precious time. Receiving it already off the boards helps you begin moving even before the puck arrives and can help spring you free of an opposing player.
Agreed. Learning angles is hugely helpful in a number of situations, and this is one of the best examples.
