But, rather than doing what the drill sergeant here suggests, we let him know how offsides works, and he started to get it and we let him keep doing his thing otherwise. Then, he gets an assist on the game winner.
At least in low level beer league, which I assume the guy dlam is talking about is in, it seems like just about everybody loses the puck quickly at least half of the time that they're passed to. Some guys just gotta lighten up.
