So, played a few games at wing. Did quite a bit better.
Decided to go with a (substantially younger) Owen Nolan, for my winger. Playing as a power forward, but finding myself to be MUCH more of a setup man. Force of habit with playing so much offline, I love to hold the puck and wait for openings to get nifty passes through. Still adjusting to the fact that I have, at best, 10-15% as much time to make those plays... But, that will come.
I've got a grand total of 1 goal, and it was a shorty.
I'm feeling like I don't know what I'm doing with bumping my stats. Doesn't help that I can't decide what type of forward I want to play...
Getting a lot more comfortable, in general. I'm playing a lot of wing, and liking it. If I'm getting pummeled offensively, I hang back and play good D. If the team I'm playing against lets me in, I'm still a better setup guy than shooter.
Wishing I had put time into this earlier, it's a lot of fun...
I'll be back to playing tomorrow (Monday) and was wondering if anyone wanted to get some good club matches in. We should try and get 3+ players for a few games...I think it would be fun. I'll be home around 12-1pm CT.
Let's decide on a time where we can all get on during that day/night? I can play any time during the day up until 10 pm CT. Let me know!
