I used to see a defender come in and just panic, which results in me bobbling the puck or throwing an errant pass to nobody.
I emigrated from Hong Kong when I was really young but now I often wonder how I would do if I played pick up there (ie is there a discernible difference in skill between players in China and Canada).

Today I joined HFBoards, but last night I played some pick up floor hockey. It bugged me so much how much lighter the ball was.. kept shooting and passing it way too high
