Hardest backward stop

There's an clip by Dan Selin on Youtube that has generated a lot of discussion in the comments section. Dan has expressed that this is a very productive, yet seldom used stop in the game of hockey. What do you guys think?

Cool, while I'm no skating expert, I can't see how putting all your weight on that one edge so frequently would allow for optimal push when transitioning to forward skating.

How would that be a 'productive stop'? To my (admittedly amateur) eyes it doesn't look as if it adds anything over more traditional stops.

Video doesn't work but the link does: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzEjWqhUjkQ

Not sure if I'd ever use this stop, but it seems like it's fun to do. Like the penguin stop.

I suck balls at back skating, so I will not be trying this.

I can do this... it just doesn't make sense. What's the point?

The point of stopping like this is to have your outside foot ready to cross over your inside foot for a quick and powerful first push. Its a maneuver used to stop and go quickly from backwards to forwards.

As opposed to stopping quicker with both feet and exploding forward? You're cutting your explosiveness drastically for a simple cross over

If it's so productive, why haven't I ever seen a pro do it during a game?

This isn't something you'd be doing every time you stop. Just in certain situations where it benefits.

I watch, and have watched, a lot of hockey. I've never seen a professional player use anything like that, ever.

What pros do though is much of the same stuff us amateurs do, just much better.

Probably the most useless way to stop possible.

There is NO circumstance where that stop would be favorable. Doing some awkward crossover from that position from backwards to forward isn't going to give you a good push at all. You could get a more powerful acceleration from a quick T-Stop or even V stop then that garbage in the vid. Hence the reason why you have never seen a NHL player do that.

Come to think of it, I think I have seen a pro do it once. His name is Kurt Browning.

That stop is pretty much useless... While difficult and pretty cool looking, it serves no functional purpose during a hockey game.

I use the one foot stop quite a bit. It's most often seen on the way to the bench where you stop with your inside foot. This looks the same just different body position.

I'd imagine it'd only be used for a d man to close the gap and engage. Otherwise, just keep doing what you're doing everyone haha
