Like they do every other fvcking drill in practice, by just doing it on their own goalies. Do it until every skater has scored at least once.

Stop taking the damn apologist route every friggin time.

 

Wow that's weird.  Unless we're shooting at our own goalies during the actual in game shootout, I fail to see how this helps.

He could've stopped a few in the shootout as well. But I feel horrible dumping on him for a skills competition after his brilliant play in regulation


Me too but let's not sugar coat this. Just on the shootouts and only shootouts Corey has been ass.

I'd seriously like to know how you can practice the shootout.

 

You can't really "practice". What you can do is separate the players with the "hands" or those who have a skill at it and go with that. Perhaps the video guys can make SO videos of the goaltender they are facing that night and see if they can find tendencies or weaknesses and just play the percentages. That's all you can really do. It's a pure skill, it's not something learned and some players, even HOF players, don't have it.

Devils have scored 37 goals for Schneider in his 23 starts (1.60 goals per game). Shooting at a 6.28% clip for him. Devils have scored 1 goal or less in 10 of his starts (43.47%). I feel for this guy.

It couldn't hurt, that's for damn sure.


It does if you're practicing something that you don't think helps you as much as practicing something else would.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

That's too much work for this coaching staff apparently as well.

Simple- spend 20 minutes at the end of practice practicing the shootout. 'Practicing the shootout' is pretty self-explanatory. Its fvcking break-away practice. All it is. It couldn't hurt, that's for damn sure.

 

I guess, but they're still shooting on their own goalies.

At worst it's good cardio like every other practice and nothing else is as glaring as this.

I guess, but they're still shooting on their own goalies.


It's better than what they are doing now which is nothing. 0-11 it's time to start doing things differently.

We did break-away drills in practice all the time when I played in high school. Teams at all levels practice one-on-the-goalie's all the time, and have since the beginning of time, long before the shootout even existed. So yeah. I disagree wholeheartedly. It can help a lot, certainly with confidence if nothing else.

That's what I'm saying. Sure he isn't very good in shootouts. But overall he has played great and has almost nothing to show for it because the team doesn't score goals for him.

Then they can practice on Marty. But it couldn't hurt to spend a little time at the end of practice working on it.

Yeah Pete actually just said the practiced it yesterday. Well, it didn't help I guess lol. But they should keep practicing it anyway. When you suck at something as bad as the Devils do at the shootout and its costing you points in the standings, you keep working on it.

It's to find players who have hands and any skill whatsoever at this. That means guys who don't miss the net, can't shoot high, can't deke in close...things like that. Who knows? Maybe a guy like Zidlicky steps up or someone you wouldn't expect. But, at this stage it's inexcusable for Pete not to try something outside the box. What's he got to lose? Another loss with no goals scored? Maybe one question from TG as to why he put Zidlicky or Carter or whomever out there as a 1-3?
