We don't have the talent to create scoring chances on a consistent basis. Dump and chase, with an aggressive forecheck is therefore the best way for us to create turnovers that lead to those chances that we're not creating through skill alone.
But Jacques doesn't believe in forechecking after the 1st period. There's your problem.
What are you talking about? In the Koivu/Kovalev era, then yes I'd agree but with all this talent you can't possibly think that this team is lacking. I'd say we're above average compared to the rest of the league.
