I watched that vid you linked. You either linked the wrong video or you don't understand what a drop pass is. Passing it along the wall to your D from the corner is not a drop pass.
I thought that at first too, but the video was portraying passing it backwards in the offensive zone (Parise to Kovalchuk), which your #9 stated not to do ever. I has nothing to do with drop passes, just passing toward the blue line in general.

Drop passes can be very effective on the rush, especially if you do it a couple of times, the D may think your going to do it again, then next time you can fake it and blow by him when he steps up trying to cheat on the play.

Point men are rarely used in Mens league by a lot of teams. I think much of that is not trusting your pointmen to make a shot that will stay below neck level though.
