Absurd suggestion. We are better off without it.

Z-steal had a very high amount of skill attatched to it with the meta-game that was placed around it. Was really disappointed it was removed since it was such a huge part of the meta-game. It is the equivalent of removing one-timer IMO.

Bring it back! More depth in stealing. Lots of players relied heavily on it.

I don't think Z-steal had a very high amount of skill attached to it. It was an advantage for the offensive player who could sometimes pull of a steal out of nowhere - and if the player ever wanted to not take the risk and keep the puck for sure he was dribbling already. So yeah I think it was a positive little push for defense. We've had discussions and how the "you get the last steal" argument stands, but in the end it's an advantage for offense, and the question is "do we want to give offense this advantage back ?". I think we don't. With various factors it lead to a meta where you actually build up teamplay actions instead of relying on your clicking-boosting through defenders "skills", and I'm all up for that.

I don't think it's anything close to removing one-timer at all.

I don't think the boost steal should come back.

That is wrong on so many levels of you don't see the advantage Defender can get with boost stealing and don't even know what you can do with boost stealing no wonder you want it gone.
