I thought you looked good for first skate of the season Joe! I liked were you robbed the guy and then he threw his glove at you, haha

Thanks fellas. :)

Very average here to put its best face on it.. More sluggish than last week. Got to get lighter on my feet. Thanks for checking it out.

Liking the side view Joe! Changing the camera angles from skate to skate is a nice change. I wish I could get a camera angle centre ice from the blue line or top of the circles in facing me in the net, kind of how some networks switch to that angle on a power play. It would be a great perspective to see the game. I thought you played well, great save on that 2-0 at 3:30! You should play in a league Joe, with a team that played with some defensive structure you would do really well, you already play great facing a constant stream of breakaways and odd man rushes in these shinny’s

Thanks for the encouragement, bud. I'm in a weird spot; I dont want to play late on a weeknight anymore and the day job prevents my doing what I think I need to do to prepare physically and mentally. I wish it were otherwise. Further,  I am not sure how well I would do in a league anymore. Any of the guys here, from beginner to experienced, who play in a league are at a level I dont think, as a practical matter, I can get to anymore. Maybe I am BS-ing myself into it but I am pretty content being a practice target. I enjoy hockey more than ever, even more than I did in youth to senior level,  and if I suck, I dont cost the team a game. And if it makes me a wuss, I"ll wear it but I dont want a 34 yr old 230 lbs Patrick Kane wanne be or was back in the day crashing me and blowing me up. The hit you took last year would have been a major problem for me.

Below here is from Saturday night a few days. I did ok in that I thought I moved better than I had the past few skates. Some awful goals where I was off angle and I have an apparent weakness on stuff moves on my right post. As an aside, I redid all the strapping on my CA and wonder of wonders, it actually fits like it should! I forgot how I dont necessarily  have to eat shots off the collar or upper chest. Protection! what a concept. 

Thanks for checking it out.

After my last skate in September, one of my parents became ill and a long stint in and out of the hospital, the parent is home. My brother covers during the week and I  cover on the weekends. I got last night off of that detail but this is going to be a process so I really dont even know whether I will be able to skate much, if at all, going forward. Just have to see how things unfold. The camera battery was not fully charged apparently so a fair amount of action - meaning goals - were missed. I thought I did average but I had a blast and got away from things a few hours. Criticism welcome.

Joe! Good to hear your parent is home! Good to see you back on the ice! Your glove hand didn’t look like it was rusty, unreal saves at :54 and 2:26. The skate looked like a decent pace and a ton of shots from the royal road.

I got the chance to skate this past Saturday and I think I was ok. Had a lot fun and hopefully the chance to skate continues to come my way.

Comments welcome and thanks for checking it out.

Awesome! Do you find it confuses shooters playing a more stand up style than most do? The way you play was pretty much how I was taught in peewee (what bits I remember) and I’m just wondering since my coach for sure teaches butterfly but also recommends standing more than some other goalies I play against seem to do (adult beer league D).

Glad to see you are able to get out a bit Joe -hope that means things are settling down with the parent(s).

Great game - the stop at ~0:33 was textbook rebound control - something a lot of goalies could learn from.

#37 in white is too big to move - cup check is the only solution!

Keep posting!

@benner33, you know, I'm really not sure. I don't think so about the standup question. I think most forget I am left handed so that might be something but again, I really just don't know.

@Colander, we're still in a day by day pattern. 

I appreciate the kind words but l am seeing lots of flaws attributable to being rusty and not concentrating like I can/should (or just not being very good). I have no flare to my legs when I drop into a butterfly and am not keeping my chest and thighs upright. I was also lazy on more than a few scrambles. Most importantly, I found myself beginning to lose my temper. I didn't say or do anything but on one of the goals, the fellas in white banged into me some, nothing stupid or mean spirited, just a few bumps and I was tempted to start barking or worse. Not good at all. Again, thanks for checking it out.

I’ve always wondered if the team gear I used in peewee had a full right set if that’s how I’d play. I’m a lefty shot when I skate out (the few times I do) and fully left handed IRL but always felt having my catch hand be my dominant worked better for me. If I find some cheep full right gear I might give it a try!

Missed last week. Not a good setup for this skate; basically a goalnado type of night. Turnout was low so the skate was 4 on 4 which led to lots of breakaways and scrambles in close. DIdnt help myself much with misplaying the puck and being off angle on off wing shots. Any way, looking forward to the next one, and thanks for checking it out.

@RichMan, I think everyone had my number. :)  Pretty much couldn't stop a beach ball that night.

Not how I see it. Shinny is tough enough. When its 4:4 the advantage goes to the forwards who want to skate, because the D never does, as shown in your latest video – 2:0s were the flavour of the day in that skate 😒

Lots of good saves and the glove was on as usual.

At the last skate (Feb 8), I tore my outer upper biceps tendon on my blocker side. Plus, as some of you who know me personally, my private life is pretty much out of control since Sept of 2019. Things obviously have been a struggle this season but we do the best we can under the circumstances. Below is from March 6, 2020. My play was pure horsefeathers. Dont worry about criticism. I know I sucked.

That skate looked like every goalie’s worst nightmare Joe. The vast majority of the shots were guys allowed to waltz along the “royal road” and get very high quality shots. Not a great skate to get back in the groove.

Hey Joe:

Glad to see you back on the ice.

Interesting: I’ve known people who took literally years to learn to stop on skates. Apparently all they needed to do was come to this game and play D for you inside your blue line.
