Quinn’s defensive zone system a combination of stability and aggression

aldactone price list Going into the season, David Quinn’s defensive zone system was going to take center stage. After years of a complicated hybrid man/zone coverage which led to rush chances for, but tons of high quality chances against, there was anticipation and hope that Quinn’s defensive zone system would be significantly easier to comprehend and execute.

viagra generika rezept online As I did with the forechecking systems, let’s do a quick refresher on the common defensive zone styles we see in the NHL.

  • forex handelszeiten sonntag Strong Side Overload – This is your typical zone you see, where teams try to outnumber the puck carrier along the boards. This generally is one half of a zone defense.
  • forex trading academy Zone/Box+1 – This is a less aggressive zone than the overload, and is often called a low zone collapse. This is your John Tortorella system when he was with the Rangers. Four skaters protect home plate, one follows the puck to apply pressure.
  • opzioni binarie strategie vincenti Man Coverage – One half of the Alain Vigneault system, this is what you expect it to be. Pick a man, stick him.

generic cytotec no prescription Quinn uses none of the above, or at least not directly. In the early going, it looks like Quinn is playing a 2-1-2 with more stable and fundamental defensive positioning. A 2-1-2 is exactly how you picture it, the forwards pressure the points, the defense cover the slot, and the center roams covering the high slot. When there’s sustained pressure, the above is basically what you should expect to see.

watch Starting with the defense positioning, it’s pretty straight forward. When the puck is low, the strong side defenseman (D1)  will go to the boards or behind the net to force the issue. D2 in this scenario covers the slot, and doesn’t really stray. If the puck crosses to the other side of the ice, D1 and D2 swap, with D1 coming to the slot and D2 going to pressure the play.

It is designed to keep them low and limit the number of high danger opportunities against. It won’t result in a ton of odd man rushes and turnovers, but it’s more conservative. It should take some of the strain away from the goalies.

Usually we would see F1 and F2 hovering by the boards in the overload, with F3 (usually the weak side winger) covering the high slot. Now we see F1 (center) in the high slot, again covering high danger chances. The wingers pressure the points regularly, instead of pressuring the strong side and leaving the weak side as an outlet.

http://resfebertravel.com/bactroban-nasal-mupirocin-calcium-ointment-2-price.html The center (F1) is also seeing a change in usage. From what we were used to, the center would be hanging along the boards looking for a turnover and transition the play. Now the center is covering the high slot and protecting high risk areas.

10 mg prednisolone ivf In the end, the Rangers will see a completely revamped defensive zone system. In the AV times, the Rangers would give up a ton of high quality chances, but the DZ style would lead to more rush chances. The defense would generate offense at the expense of actual coverage.

ciprofloxacin 500 mg treat chlamydia Under Quinn, we will see a significant decrease in quality chances against and blown coverages. The system is simple enough that players will know where they need to be. It should cut down on the amount of times we scream “WTF” at the TV as well. On the flip side, we won’t see that many rush chances and goals off turnovers. It will be less exciting, but more stable.

    enter I like it….Now we need some Defensemen

    http://prontosys.com/can-i-get-a-viagra-prescription-online.html I have seen 2 defenseman behind the net, and no forwards covering the slot. I think this is a system that requires discipline, which is difficult to expect with a young team. I also think it is a challenging system if you have slow players. Not sure how long it will take for the D to adjust and the O to properly float back into the slot so the D isn’t out-manned at times.

          http://www.mobilentis.com/finasteride-5mg-tablets-picture.html There are good veterans and poor veterans. The GM needs to make smart choices, but also open up slots to allow our youth to grab some spots. While Staal is an easy target, we probably have to sell 2 veteran defenseman to allow guys like Tony D and Hajek (next year) to have spots to win.

          enter On the offensive side, guys need to show value. Sure I want Kravsov and Andersson to play, but make sure it is a step up to these guys from what we currently have in place, no matter what line they play on.

          go site I wouldn’t mind to see a trade for some new vet’s. Isle are going to create a super team beneath our noses in one season.

          dapoxetine buy online usa I don’t know why but I have this feeling that their top 6 will insist of Duchene, Panarin and someone else by next season. I know that it would take some major people skills by Lou to persuade them to resign.
