For all those on Beer League Teams who play on a team where the people on the team are, to be kind, not proficient when it comes to defensive zone coverage, I present to you a great video to pass along.
This is amazingly perfect. I now understand how to read the ice so much better. I made a lot more defensive plays as a center last night and was piling up the takeaways, bringing our team to the offensive zone a lot more. I'm way more confident after that eye opener. I showed this to my entire team, and in one game we had a noticeable increase in our defensive confidence later in the game when we're usually in disarray with exhaustion.
