Our player goalie was cheating, HARD, to the middle, so I had to sit much further to the boards than I'm used to. I was hitting the faceoff dot during break-ins to just block easy short-side goals against...

I'll try RW for a few games, and see how that goes. Though I'll have to find a different Wild player to be, Prosser as a RW doesn't quite work.

I used to play as Antti Miettinen when I was a winger.
