Man strength. Reads. Pace of the game. Angling the play and the player is different at higher speeds and physicality levels. Guys you used to be able to pin you cant catch. Guys you used to be able to catch you can't pin. Same goes for forwards, but primarily as a puck carrier, you can get by on skill and puck protection. Obviously reductive but the first things that come to mind.

That's also why I don't like guys that are playing full SAH-defenseman role at lower levels getting drafted so high.
So, it's most of the time adjusting to different leagues that determines the players progress? It''s never something they have to really add to their game? So it's mostly timing and bulking up? Interesting.

Man oh man does Bryan Hayward have a big head.





He reminds me of James Donaldson, who played in the NBA. Daryl Dawkins once dubbed him as "American Tourister," because his head was as big as a suitcase.

No, of course guys need to tweak their game with coaching and work on things as they go along. I'm just saying broadly defenseman can't afford mistakes as much as forwards can (though that notion is changing imo) so those issues with coverage and positioning get exploited for guys who aren't ready. And keep in mind how much tougher it is to 'bench' a defenseman instead of a forward within the game. Notice also it's mostly the 'offensive' d-men that get brought in younger (and consequently how many of them develop a well-rounded defensive game?).

The Royal Half ‏@theroyalhalf 38s

Literally just turned on Ducks-Flames so I can hear Brian Hayward justify why it’s fine that Anaheim is down 5-0 to Calgary.

Lol Ducks, keep the freefalling going.

They are sustainable shooting percentages though guys. Playoffs going to arrive perfectly, for us to have home seed against the Ducks who will look like the worst team in the West

I might be a bit too optimistic, but I really believe we will catch one of the two teams ahead of us.

Touchdown Flames...6-1

Well, we got 1 more against the Sharks and 2 left against the Ducks. If we can win those games and make up some ground somewhere between, it's possible. I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

I know. But if we beat the Leafs, then the Ducks on Saturday , it's now only 7 points, with 14 games to go.

And expensive water that has to be burred out every time he drinks from the bottle. This is so ridiculous that the NHL does this for every brand shown in the series.

Exactly. The Ducks will be playing their 3rd in four night on Saturday, including playing the Avs the night before.

As much fun as it is to laugh at the Ducks, that was us not too long ago. At least it will humble some of their more vocal and arrogant fans.

Colorado outlasts Chicago, and jumps them in the division standings.

Colorado continues to surprise.
