    Based on the interview, sounds like Coach Smith really likes it as well, calling out specialty situations. Faceoffs wasn't one of them, though.

    it really seems rather simple doesn't it? You cannot score if you do not get the puck. The opponent cannot score if they cannot get the puck. All about control. Seems to me that and odd man situations (specialty team play) is just about the most important thing to focus on.

    Not ENTIRELY true, as there have been plenty of times a team has put the puck into their own open net. However, possession can be a bit misleading, especially considering a significant percentage of goals in our league are scored on the odd man rush.

    Leave it to you to find the exception to the rule. Tell me FDude, how often have you seen a team put the puck in their own net? I'll take that risk to keep control of the puck. See russian National team performance in the Olympics back in the days before our professionals were allowed in. They did not lose often and preached and played possession hockey

    I separate them as such on the schedule spreadsheet because of programming limitations, and probably carried over from that. I do agree with your separation, although it wouldn't be exactly that proper to put "Dirty Birds" on the sheet.

    I saw us do it at the Shillelagh tournament right in front of me, as well as once at Lake Placid. Strangely enough, we had a goalie in both times. I will give you they were freakish in nature. As for the Soviets, wasn't one of the main callouts their ability create odd man situations that resulted in many goals, as opposed to the "earned goals" that would happen from possession play?

    They would hold the puck and cycle for what seemed forever. often going back and starting over. But their offense started by gaining the puck and they always had 3 very good faceoff men on the ice at most times. Speaking of the late 50's and 60's of course.

    Always felt the nickname 'Minutemen' kind of derogatory.
