I have always said that I would rather "lose pretty than win ugly". If my players were moving to the right spots, if they were cycling the puck down low, moving the puck, reading the mismatches and acting accordingly, playing puck protection, dumping and changing, looking for the open man, etc. and growing in their knowledge and understanting of the game then If we happen to what. They were becoming better players and that is the goal. I can drive home from that game reminiscing of the great plays made to get into position to shoot. Ugly wins with sloppy individual (not team) play leaves no memories for me. Jeff J. McDonald - Kansas City Bantam AA.
