A defenceman's guide to handling the pressure

It's not easy to be a young defenceman in today's NHL. With round-the-clock coverage on TV and online, it seems as if even the smallest gaffe is magnified and then broken down endlessly. The pressure is constantly on, and mistakes just aren't tolerated. What's a young defenceman to do?

Luckily, there are dependable veterans like Chris Phillips and friends who are willing to serve as mentors to the next generation.

  2. I'm not a fan of Backstrom being on here, because he was a rookie and it wasn't an important game unlike the others.

  7. "I'm not a fan of Backstrom being on here, because he was a rookie and it wasn't an important game unlike the others." One, Steve Smith was a rookie when he did his goof and two, Caps vs Pens in the only important hockey game in America.

    Yeah it wasn't an important game like that massive November tilt between the Canadiens and Islanders in which O'Byrne made a name for himself.

  14. Not to nitpick but how was Paul Coffey's brainfart from the 96 WCF vs. Colorado not in there. That was McCabe times ten.

  15. Kyle, I agree. But I think DGB was trying to use players currently in the league. If they included Coffey this video loses all probability!! ;)

  16. Time to add Cory Sarich!

  17. Small nit-pick for the end bit when they say "Exit stage left". Stage left is also the audiences left so they did in fact exit stage left the time when the young defencemen tell them they did it wrong.

  18. My Name's Corey Sarich and I scored in my own net!
