If a dude sucks so bad that he keeps sending them at your head, maybe just step out of the way? I had a teammate who switched to goalie for some clinics and first shot I took on him hit him on the wrist of his glove hand and stung so bad it went numb for several minutes. So he just got out of the way whenever I shot afterwards
That's pretty much our exact argument. If a guy keeps shooting it around my head, I'm just going to duck and risk the fact that one of those shots may sneak under the crossbar. It's a pick up game. I'm not risking my neck (pun intended) to stop a shot in a meaningless skate.
