Thank you for making my point. Was going to use this example but did not want to be inundated with youtube requests.

Perfect example of one of his technical weaknesses. Blocker also holds the stick. A lot more efficient to sweep the puck away to safety with the stick then to try to control it with the blocker that was not designed for such moves.
