Today, I wish to share with you my (Adnan's) love for soft, perimeter players. But unlike my colleagues, who have extolled the virtue of their game and the enjoyment associated with watching them dangle through five or six players, I'd like to show you what I think is their best attribute.
You see, everyone loves the big hits in hockey. The big giant guys, going in and absolutely CRUSHING the little guy. Which is a metaphor for life. The big guy gets the job, the fancy car, the girl, while the little guy is peeled off the glass/ice/bar counter.
But in hockey, this isn't the case.
In hockey, the little guy can use his Speedy Skilled Sneakiness for the forces of GOOD! Saving the world from another neanderthal!
Before you read on, please open the following tab in the background.
Are you done? Good. You see, the little guys have the Speed and the Skill to Sneak (see what I did there) by the big players. For example (you have to mouseover the pictures to start the GIFs):
Now granted, he used magic, which is generally frowned upon. But since he's an Enigmatic Russian, he was able to not care so much he teleported to a spot closer to the bench.
Another strategy used by SSSneaks is "Extreme Politeness." As seen below, when a player is heading to the bench for a change, you stop and allow them to pass safely. The HHH, upon being surprised at your politeness, forgets to finish his check, and instead goes for a change.
Another example is this play by Burrows. Notice how, in true Classy Player Fashion (CPF), he ensures the opposing player is okay afterwards.
Of course, it cannot be overstressed that once you have used your skills to miss being checked, remember to turn the setting off, otherwise your teammates find it difficult to celebrate with you.
