Should we stand up at the line? Should we contain to one side? Both approaches have their pros and cons, and it’s ultimately up to the player to read the situation and make a decision. In other words, it’s a situation that makes me happy to be a coach and not a player. The reward of stepping up on the blue line and stopping the rush before it fully takes shape is great, but the risk of the play blowing past the defensemen is great as well. For former Vancouver Canucks assistant coach Glen Gulutzan, minimizing the potential damage and committing to proper habits makes a world of difference for defensemen as well as forwards facing an attack that just seems to get faster and faster every year.
