I find that playing defense at a pick up and seeing what moves guys do on me is a great way to learn what to do. I can remember as a kid, some much better kid used the boards on me for the first time and made me look stupid. From then on I would bank the puck off the boards when the opportunity arose. Same with watching for the crossover thing the guy above said, some guy did that to me and I knew exactly what happened and tried to replicate it later.
Also, stick work looks nice, but is hard and less effective than just skating around people when you can. Keep it simple.
