This has been our MO ever since the first lockout/strike.
despite the fact that we were claiming to be building a team based on speed to take advantage of the new impediment rules. too often our players are standing still and can't do jack **** with the puck even if it comes to them. watch the elite players in this league and you will notice they don't stop moving, even if gliding. if you have ever played hockey you know it is far easier to move in any direction that way. was always my biggest gripe against Kovalev. when he decided to keep his feet moving he was unstoppable.
