Yep, they'll do that. But if you'll work a little, you can get that under control. And once you do, you'll be able to open it up a little more and a little more, and you'll wonder how you ever skated any other way.

I say those things with such conviction because it's the path I've travelled. I run 'em short and I run 'em soft, and anything else just feels funny. I didn't get there overnight, but I did get there and haven't looked back.
