"The Legs Feed The Wolf..."
- Herb Brooks
Players and coaches of North American teams have seen that Russian hockey players are extremely fast skaters. Russian players practice everything on the ice at uncomfortably fast tempo and speed. Their feet are always moving, their stick never stops moving in and out, passes are made and received while skating full speed around corners, and goaltenders never know when the shot is coming.
Because of the incredibly high tempo of movement in practice, the Russian players "comfort zone" (meaning the pace in which he is comfortable performing the skills of the game of hockey) is very fast. Therefore when he enters into a game, he does not have to crank it up a notch like many other players do. He just goes into the game and performs at the same tempo that he has practiced at hour after hour, year after year.
