Instead of always having to try and jump-start the rush, we'd be able to move the puck out with much safer passes (getting rid of the giveaways), and play a dump + chase more often.
It all sounds well and good, but with the way Wilson coaches, i can't see him implementing any of this. The Leafs are more of a straight rush team, and barely is a cycle initiated and held for long. Our skill guys seemingly don't have the strength to hold a cycle for very long at all.
