The Slap Pass

Post by Corb » Wed Nov 30, 2011 8:12 pm

Just watching the Wild and Coiler game and the Wild executed a perfect Sedin slap pass PP move.

Did the Sedins "invent" this?

Maybe they popularized it.

Who cares when it started, but it is very easy to coin the Twins as the first to get as close to perfection as it gets - consistently. I can remember numerous goals scored in the 09-10 season that were all slap passes.

Fair to say they set the bar.

Been around for a long long time. Used to be just a tip from the slot.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Sure, it has happened that way but it takes much more skill on both the passer and scorer than the shot from the point and a wave of the stick.

Speaking of name changes, what happened to head manning the puck? Announcers never use the phrase anymore ?
