I've really started to note the guys on my team who are willing to do it, and they're starting to do it more. I'm trying to determine if this is because they're trying harder to help me out, or if they've gone nuts in regards to playing with me.
I'm mainly curious because i want to know if it's a common thing, or if my guys are becoming more than willing to help me out in net.
For a story, A d man on one of my three teams, while experienced as a winger, started playing D this year. The beginning was a little rough, and even now it's still edge at times. But he has improved quite a bit, doesn't have a quitting attitude and is now ready to dive in front of shots and box guys out a lot bigger than him.
I give this guy a lot of kudos, he makes some great plays and bails me out from time to time, though he still isn't 100% on positioning and duties.
I block shots when playing on lower tier teams. I don't when playing mid-high tiers.
Those slappers actually hurt.
Yeah, I'm a bad teammate.
