At low levels, defenseman are often the best players out there. If they can carve through the ice, they might be better off playing D and starting from behind their own net. They'll gain more speed and have a better view of the play in front of them. Then they can return to the point if they don't score off the rush.

It might not be a bad idea to stick one of your better players on D.
