JLSG and David, my point about the one timers wasn't the only thing that can be accomplished from that formation. The players have the ability to pass in any direction but with the wrong handed shot they are taking away an option or a good option of being able to pass back quickly or to a different spot on the ice. The game is so fast that a micro second of time that it takes for the puck to come across the body is enough time for a defender to close in. Then the time it takes to redeliver the puck gives them that much more time to close in.
I think what David was saying is right, simplify. Pucks to the net, have guys dig the puck out, go for dirty goals or get the puck back to the point. I think the talent is there or the pieces are there at the very least, it's just a matter of utilizing them better.
