Purely skating drills, properly organized, produce a situation where players cannot hide weaknesses so you get an excellent idea of what has to be worked on.
Sorry i wasn't clear enough with my first comment. My bad.
I had many coaches who would start off practice with a 15 min bag skate.
I've also had a few others who would do 3 on 3 rather than bag skating.
IMO, doing endless laps around the rink is 15 min of wasted time. At least with 3 on 3 i get my conditioning while trying to execute all the skills that one would need during a game.
Technical skating drills are very important, i should have separated the two
