MortUWary - great story man! I wish i didn't live in such a hockey-barren town... from your descriptions those adult clinics are just what I need. My skating is def stronger than my stick handling/hockey sense, and it's hard to combine the two in the absence of in-game situations.
dpressma - I am in the same boat as most other posters... no problem doing hockey stops with right foot leading, but having trouble with left foot leading. Same with crossovers and c-cuts - stronger going left but feels awkward going right. I think the only answer is practice, practice, practice. Yesterday I just did blue line to blue line sprints/stops alternating stopping with my strong side and weak side. The biggest problem I am having on my weak side when stopping is rotating that back foot over and using its outside edge.
