if you have an athlete that doesn't know the game, that's the best spot for them for sure. We recruited our share of cross country runners and that's where we put them at tournaments. But unless you are in a really competitive environment, its stupid to worry about putting people in the best spot.
yeah that makes sense. I guess I would have probably done the same thing as they did if it were intramural hockey. "Okay, you just skate straight to the net and create traffic".
