I don't mind if you're not a great hockey player so long as you at least cover a guy in the D zone and take him out of the play. If you chip the puck out of the zone or even ice it after a long shift, that's great.

Normally when I see new players who are good athletes and/or played pond hockey, they struggle at first with the defensive zone play. By the end of a season though, they have it figured out. But players who are over the heads will tend to struggle year after year.
