In The Mighty Ducks movies (D1, D2, D3), the team's signature move is the Flying V. What exactly does it achieve?
But that's not what happens in the second movie:(The German team just seems to be watching them skate forward together in the inverted V formation, and then Jesse Hall shoots and scores.)
(I do realise their weak defense was a plot point for the third movie.)
If the point of the formation is to protect the middle player, why is it an inverted V? The middle player is in front of his teammates, and the opposing players can reach him before his teammates can protect him (as seen in the third movie). How is the Flying V effective?
