Hank has been playing more and more of a hybrid style each year, trying to stand upright longer on shots and be more aggressive with his glove, because of the fact that opponents try to shoot high. Last game, it burned him, but most of the time it has paid off.
No, but thanks for being condescending about it...
If you think players going down to block shots don't make the offense shoot high pretty often...I'll just respectfully disagree with you on that one.
