Komiserak is a nightmare waiting to happen when he handles the puck, Beauchimen lacks the stickhandling and common sense to make a good pass out of the zone. Phaneuf is average in this area.
Can't put it all on the D buds.

Forwards have to put themselves in a position to receive the puck also and make sure there is a direct line to their stick for a defenceman to pass it to.

The forwards can't just skate straight up ice and hope the defenceman gets it to one of them.
