A series of quick passes moves the puck up the ice a lot quicker than a player moving it up. I think too much emphasis is placed on a puck carrier of this type. In 2008 when we finished first, oposing teams said that we had the fastest team to play against. Not because the players were the fastest, but they moved the puck up quickly with a couple of quick passes which gave the opposing team hardley any time to adjust. We also finished with the most goals that year. I know Carbo was the coach and not Martin but that is not that great of an adjustment for Martin to do. Plus next year, Markov and Gorges should be back which would help a lot for this.
The other choice is to stay the course, and hope we finish 7-8 again. Would you rather take a chance.
