Do you think this is just a mental barrier? Has anyone else felt similar? If so, what did you do to overcome it?
nothing to overcome...
really a situational thing
a puck always moves way faster than a skater, and in game play you want to create advantage, not dangle.
if in the defensive zone, sometimes you gotta make the safe pass, sometimes you gotta grunt it up.
if anything, feeling guilty might be a small issue
if you're lookin for an opportunity as you move it up ice - heads-up play is never a bad thing.
...if you're not movin to support or cover, after you make the pass, then that's a problem.
most of the game is played off the puck
