Hall tends to build up way too much speed on his wide open breakaway chances.

I think in JR hockey you can intimidate a less experienced goalie by coming in hard...but...a better pro level goalie isn't going to have a hard time with just straight speed.

Breakaway efficiency is like pretty much any other aspect of the game in that its not so much about what move you make its how well you make it.

So I agree with you...Hall needs to keep working on his shooting/accuracy.

Ultimatley he can have success by shooting more and less stickhandling.

And as a left handed shot...I strongly believe the stick side on a left hand glove goalie is where you want to be looking.
