    Jer here's what I prefer by position

    LW - RH preferably 5 speed guy or agile/high STH,  (Lafontaine/Hogue/)

    C - at least 4/4 A/S along with min 4/5 Shot/Acc (Roberts/Turgeon/Carson/Hull (6/3))

    RW - LH 5/4 A/S with 5+ STH  (Makarov/Hawerchuck/Damphouse/Savard)

    D - min 4/3 A/S and 6+ weight

    Pre-pass shooting, I was 100% on having wingers play on their stick side.  Once I learned how to pass shot I pretty much require having my wingers on their off stick side.  Much better for cross crease pass shots as well as cross crease one timers. 

     My C I prefer a good to great shot, weight doesn't matter as much as long as they have min 4/4 A/S. 

    Defense I don't value as high, mostly because I exclusively B check and have novice CB check skills.  I just want them to have some agility to stick handle out of trouble when called upon.

    Goalie give a light agile goalie (terreri/casey) that allows me to get side to side quickly with GC to try and thwart one timers.  No concern on the light weights getting exploited by ram goals.  They're very infrequent maybe because I take GC so early and often? 


    I essentially agree with IceStorm's ideal team. I like my wingers a bit faster than my center unless it is Mogilny. I never want a dman with more speed than agility under any circumstances. It makes their turning circles when changing to the backwards skate wider and slower - and that blows. I'll sacrifice stickhandling for passing from my d men as I want the puck out of their hands. I don't really care how much they weigh. Unless you have Bourque or maybe Brown, you should not use the d man for many slappers so who cares about the shot? I mean I'll take a better shot, but I'm not going to use in anything except the most desperate situations. 


    As for his Ice's opinion on stick side, I go back and forth. Passing is definitely crisper from the off stick side but you also have less ability to carry the puck well. I go back and forth on which side to put my guys. Against better players I generally agree with going off stick side. I am an avid stick side deke shooter with a speedster, but against someone with above average defense I don't get many opportunities to do that.

    But really, to keep it suuuuuper simple, can't you say:

    If you want to C-check:

    • If you are using a light guy, use C only
    • If you are using a fat guy, do CB

    (Not Sure what to do for in-betweeners, like 7-9 weight... B-check? Pray?)

    I am not a good CB checker, but the above I can keep straight.  It is generally correct, right? (I know I am too old and dumb to do any quick math on the fly...)

    Playing Uncle Seth led me to believe when in doubt CB. Be warned, missing a C/CB check when you are in your zone on defense (not sure if that is correct hockey lingo) often has disastrous consequences.

  3. can someone explain how my guys get taken down from behind?

    I feel like I'm the one person who doesn't know how to do this. Is it a b check? CB? When I CB someone skating away from me it never works. 

    I also have never witnessed that checking increases the odds of a CB. You'd expect some of the 1 checking guys to suck at CB checks, and I've never noticed that.

    i understand where you are coming from, but I think tru makes a good point. The runner-up list excludes people that aren't a part of a select list. Look how halifax deliberately didn't put me on the list (again). With AJ and kingraph having bud of the year awards, I would definitely have one too if my reputation weren't tainted.

    Bud of the year doesn’t go well with persistent drama. I think you are often right, but it is part popularity contest. Right???


    I have no idea what @slapshot67 did but thanks anyway! 

    Edit: I didn’t realize we were talking about the runner up list. Plabax for runner up!
