Nobody can argue that we would be successful this season unless we had been able to steal the puck as often.
We have 30 giveaways, 8th fewest in the league (Boston has least with 20). We have 51 takeaways, 2nd most in the league (Washington has 61).
So I'm not really sure what your point is, unless you are talking about dump and chase. There's nothing wrong with dump and chase. If the other team's defense is standing up at the blue line, dump and chase is an effective way to gain the zone.
