The difference in my stick handling is night and day now. I think putting that effort in really made the difference. I can play to my pace now and force defenders to make the first move. 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
