Try it next time
In terms of being a good net presence...speaking as a goalie, the guys that cause me the most trouble are actually the ones that have good hand eye and can create tips and deflections. Better hand eye also lets you track and corral rebounds quicker than the goalie can (in theory). Of course you also have to be fearless and willing to take a lot of punishment.
Thanks for the tip I'll be sure to try that one out.
And yeah even during assessments I was getting my legs hacked at by the goalie and defenders got a few scratches but its worth it for a goal/win in the season.
