Still... I can't stop fantasizing about dancing through traffic like Malkin and beating the goalie with a Datsukian dangle.
I think my problem is in combining precise stickhandling with quick foot movement. I noticed last night that the faster my feet move the less I'm stickhanding the puck.
Coordination and having to think about both things.
Big issue for me is my generally bad skating which i tend to think about doing and so stick handling etc is harder.
