I have seen this power play set up work well but have never tried it. Last night I decided to practice it with the rules that passes should beat only one defender and a shot every 3". It is very difficult to kill vs this formation and I may even try it 5-4.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

T2 - Low Dice 5-3 Power Play

Key Points:
Right shooters play on the left side and left on the right to enable quick shots and forehand passing. Quick passes and attacks spread the defensive triangle.

1. Set up with everyone on the off wing.
2. Middle player stay about the hash marks.
3. Attack rule is that either the puck or the player moves. No standing still.
4. Attack goal is a shot every 3".
5. Use passes that beat one defender.
6. Rotate the high triangle.
7. Attack with: walk-outs, one timers, back door passes. switch and pick.

T2-4 - Sequence for Practicing Team Play

This is my new favourite sequence to practice team play using a drill and then three transition games that create almost every situation in hockey in all three zones. The first drill has been around for a long time. I liked the way the American League coaches had the new 1-1 go to the red line before turning back. This allowed the original 1-1 F and D to get up into the play. This could be done as a 2-1, 2-2 as well or even a 1-2 which is seldom worked on.

The transition games create 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-2, 3-3, 4-4, 5-5 situations and if you attacked with less numbers like a 1-2 more situations would be created. I still have to do the diagram for the first two transition games.

UNDERSTANDING INTERNATIONAL ICEHOCKEY - 1950-1990's

My good friend Juhani Wahlsten (Juuso) of Turku, Finland resent me this article he wrote in the early 90's. It is about his hockey background where he learned the game outside in Kuopio a little town where they had moved to avoid the bombing in Helsinki. Hockey was a new game there. Juuso went on to play 11 years with the National Team and 3 Olympics. He is in the Finnish Sports Hall of Fame and was inducted into the IIHF Hall of Fame about six years ago along with the Swede Kent Nilsson and Russian Petrov. I think the Finns view Juuso like Canadians view Gordie Howe.

When Juuso retired from playing he taught PE in the school system and hockey classes at two sports schools in Turku. Virta, Koivu, Kipprusoff, were some of his students. He also coached in Finland, Spain and Germany. Juuso speaks 7 languages. When I was with him in Vienna and we were teaching the Austrian coaches the ABC system he did the classes and I did the ice time. He taught in German, talked with me in English and with a Finn who was coaching there in Finnish. I remember him going to France to give a seminar in of course French, he spoke Spanish to the Spaniards and Swedish to the Swedes and so on. He is an INTERNATIONAL PERSON.

Juuso negotiated contracts for the first Finns to come and play in the World Hockey Association, both his sons were drafted by the NHL and had long European pro careers (Jali also played in the AHL). Scotty Bowman asked him to be his assistant coach in Buffalo and he would have been the first European NHL coach but he stayed in Finland.

I have pasted the article below and will update what he has done since the article at the end.

D200 - 2 - 2 + 1 - Jokers on the Side – Finland

Key Points:
Get open on transition to offense and cover pass receiver on transition to defense.
Goalie control rebounds.

Description:
Cross ice game of 2-2 with one Joker from each team on the side. Extra players on the blue line keep the puck in. Rotation is: Jokers activate with one new player and the second new player becomes a Joker.

Organization
- Play 15-25".
- Pass to the teammate in the middle who can only shoot or pass.
- Defense ignores joker and covers the pass receiver.

Game works on offensive (role 2) and defensive support (role 4) and has intense battles.

This game is the basic template and the coach can modify rules like only forehand passes, only saucer, only one timers, maximum 2" with the puck, only one pass, backward skating only, in other words any skill can be isolated.

B3 - Partner Passing Technique - Finnish U20

Key Points:
Keep the hands away from the body and follow through at the target. On saucer passes the puck rolls from the heel to the middle of the stick. Receive with the stick square to the puck and hands away from the body.
When saucering the puck have the players think of throwing a frisbee. The motion across the body and then projecting the disk is the same as rolling the puck from the heel to the middle of the blade and then follow through at the target.

Description:
1. Partners pass to each other.
2. Focus on the four phases of projection.
a. wind-up - bring the puck back.
b. force production - move it forward with the stick blade rotating heel to middle.
c. crucial instant - release with a snap of the wrist.
d. follow through - the stick blade follows the direction of the puck. Receive with stick square
3. When practicing the saucer pass have a target for it to land on. In the diagram try to drop the puck onto the red line.
4. Progress to passing while skating.
