I agree, I think Ryan showed us all something important by targeting the wraparound, he stretched the goalie out by doing that a lot and made it easier for his mates to pick him apart. He got in the tenders head and forced him to focus on his feet more than he wanted to, he broke him open with the wrap-around. The wraparound is like the backhand it is extremely valuable but underrated. Both shots make it extra hard for the tender to stay in the zone because of the odd unpredictable rebounds that they generate.

Hope Smitty keeps the pressure on and the pedal down, we need the scoring depth he can generate badly right now.
