If my brother can get his damn video recording set together, I could record some quality videos of the entire practice as well.

I propose we try to figure out a play that has a Dman and winger rotating so that we can get some open shots. If we can confuse teams and get Stallion and Gator open, they could have a free lane open all night long. Our PP would be boss if we can figure something out.

Thanks for giving me the try-out guys. Had a lot of fun and learned a lot from you all. The break out plans Nate offered really helped out my game with moving the puck out of the defensive zone. I have things to work on so I can understand if I'm not considered up to par with you all. I'd love to get the chance to continue learning though and also be involved in the practice, in the future.

Tryout? What tryout? You're not on a tryout.

Tough way to lose. Did you see those bounces?

Things are getting better though. Just have to get that Power Play going. I think that's the only thing really holding us back right now. Hopefully we can get enough guys on and get a practice going to work on the PP.

NOTES
- As you can see, both breakouts are flipped, depending on which side the puck is on. q
OFFSIDE D: As the play moves over towards the opposite side of the ice, this defenseman needs to slide into the middle of the blueline. This opens up the defense for a 1-timer (or a wrist shot, depending on what you look) or to simply send it down to the left side to regroup from that side.
PUCKSIDE D: As the puck comes to your side, you will move to the boards. This way, the winger has an easy pass to the point (and it’s not going to go to our end). This defenseman can simply push the puck back down to the right winger, take a shot, move it to his defensive partner (be careful here), or just toss it into the corner.
OFFSIDE WINGER: You want to be able to get behind the net if the winger wants to the reverse the play, but you also want to be in a position where you can score. If your general positioning is where it shows on the board you will be available for passes and for the behind the net pass. If the offside d-man gets a 1-timer, it’s your job to cover his point until he’s back in position.
PUCK SIDE WINGER: You have the puck, the game is on your stick. If you see the center or offside defenseman open for a shot, go for it. If you see the cross 1-timer pass to the offside winger open take it (don’t try to throw it through 15 guys). If you have a lane to the net for an easy shot, take it if you wish. If you have nothing open, simply reverse (much like defenseman, say REVERSE on the mic, which will allow your left winger to know to get behind the net) or throw it up to the defenseman on the point.
CENTER: Float around in the high slot. If a winger gets pinned to the boards down low, try to support him and give him an a lot. If the puckside defenseman pinches in to keep the puck in the zone, circle back and cover him on defense until the he gets back.


- If our system had one word to describe it - it's basically going to be "smart." Basically, we are going to try to make the smart play, make the high percentage plays and leave the low percentage plays for teams who aren't as good as us. If we play smart, play good defense (THIS IS VERY KEY), we're going to be a very good team. We are going to capitalize on mistakes and score just as many goals, no doubt in my mind. But if we are defensively responsible, we are going to force the other team to make more mistakes because they will become frustrated.

POWERPLAY: I think this set-up will work fine on the Powerplay, except the center will have more freedom to go deeper as we will have the extra player on the ice. This same set-up would work perfectly for a 5 on 3 since we will be able to open the seems very easily for a cross-slot pass to the winger or center.

NOTES
- This is pretty basic and should help us greatly on defense.

- Play our position. I've outlined, with your colour, the area that you should be while in the defensive zone 95% of the time! It's that simple.
WINGERS: You're responsible for the point men. We need to watch them. Other teams do have guys like Gator who can score with ease from the point. The offside winger should be in the high slot, while the puckside winger should be covering the point.
CENTER: Again, you have the most freedom, but also the most responsibility. Most importantly, you need to watch the slot. You will also need to cover the PUCKSIDE defenseman if he cashes into the corner. We are going to try to eliminate chasing as much as possible, but if it happens, cycle down into their spot until they return.
DEFENSEMAN: It's pretty simple to know what you're supposed to do. TRY AS HARD AS POSSIBLE NOT TO CHASE! Protect the side of the net and the front of the net. Tie guys up in front of the net. And hit any guy about to get a cross crease pass (you will never get a penalty, and even a slight bump usually messes up their shot).


ATTENTION

If you have any plays, simple draw it out on the play board below, give detailed instructions on what each player does, and SEND IT TO ME VIA PM! Anything sent to me will be considered for POWERPLAY, PENALTY KILL, AND ANY OTHER OFFENSIVE STRATEGIES AND/OR PLAYS!

So in order to get in and get the cycle started, the wingers need to either Drop pass or slap it around the boards. I should practice my skills in those I guess since as of right now I never use either

ok so my request to join TeamHF was just accepted and I'm online right now. Anyone ready to show the new guy how HF hockey is played? I already read through the systems and positioning shouldn't be a problem either way but my player is still only rookie 2 so I need to start leveling up.
