All true.

Silf is suffering from the same problem to a degree, probably just another adjustment they are going through.

On the larger ice surface it gives the wingers more room to take pucks wide and carry deeper into the offensive zone. On NHL rinks the D is right in the wingers face. I noticed early on in Bingo Silf was taking those long shots as well, but he is adjusting.

My season tickets are at the end of the rink and I get to see lots of shots and I can say Zibby's is as fast and hard as anyone's. He took a wrist shot against the Islanders from the right circle that DiPietro is still is looking for.
