Well here we are again, 4 games into the new season & my perennial self doubt is raising its ugly head!
Every year for the last 5 seasons without fail & question my kit or my skill set & every year since the 1st I get reminded by folks that I do it every year!
The trouble is over the summer you simply forget how fast the sport is (especially from between the benches) & how difficult it is to get into that groove of doing a Gretzky & knowing where the puck is going. A lot of the lack of fluidity & anticipation comes from the fact that until the new guys have settled into their new lines, you struggle to get a feel of how a break out is going to flow. Hopefully now the guys have started gelling I can get my Mojo back get the shots I want to capture.
That said it’s great to be back again & Doug & the boys are producing some fantastic high tempo hockey again this season that will hopefully lead to us capturing some silverware in April.
