Honestly, it feels like you're not working on much, but the drills I do with my college team are the same ones I see little kids can always, ALWAYS work on stopping, edge control, crossovers, building speed, etc. You're always going to have a weak side.

It's kind of funny actually, I had been away from hockey and skating for a number of years before I started playing club hockey at school. I felt more comfortable that first time back after god knows how long than when I get on the ice and haven't skated for 3 days now...i think i've lost everything and my game will go to hell...well truth be told my game never really left hell in the first place but w/e lol...

I teach guitar, and there are guys who are really, really terrified of calling me up and asking for lessons. Honestly, I don't understand why our culture thinks that if you haven't started doing something by age 16, you can never pick it up. There is absolutley no shame in asking for help from someone who's been there! Good luck man.
