How do you watch hockey?

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Dear friends, people I reluctantly tolerate, and Hopfenkopf:

u/UnCommonBackRub posted what I thought was a great question on r/hockey today.

what kinds of things do you specifically look for when watching games and why?

Mile High Hockey has lot's of folks lazying around that know the game well and there's plenty of us plebs (hockey noob for 20 years and running here) who could really benefit from your knowledge. What are some specific things we can watch for on or off the puck that will help us understand the game better? Give us some homework for the NYI game and the Olympics.

Bonus points for any tips that can help people catch the nuts & bolts of Roy's system or to help compare and contrast the strategies used by the National Teams in Sochi.

Over the years, my hockey knowledge and I'm sure that of many others, has really benefited from posts and comments by Mike@MHH, c6hor8 and others. Please continue to slave away to my benefit and rest assured it will continue to earn you nothing but more work and ridicule.

All the best,

MalachiConstant
