Yes. Watch for this in tonight's game. Dump the puck in, all three forwards change, the next line comes back on the ice and skate toward the neutral zone/our defensive blue line with very weak if any fore-check.

Other teams exploit the hell out of this against us.

it could be worse we could have a young bore you out of your seat coach like Boucher.
Lines on both sides are changing. One forward with the puck carrying it in vs two DMen on the other team. Not a 100% chance that he will keep possession. But it is a chance to keep possession as opposed to the system that Martin uses which is a 0% chance that we will keep possession.

What the hell does Boucher have to do with this discussion? He is employed with another team.
