i am just getting all the intricacies of the game, and its really nice to notice good plays and techniques as opposed to bad.
If you REALLY wanna see the little thing, buy tickets behind the net (like section 217). You will see how these guys set up to break out....what they see as they proceed and how they adjust to different defensive schemes....it is amazing.
And the lack of communication is what has killed this defense.....looks like the insertion of a rookie who has not played here, means he has a lot to say and see on the ice and he is talking his way through it with his partner.
