poor decision making plagued the forwards most of the year. There's a difference, though, between not passing with authority (Leino, which I was speaking about) and "bad passing" (Roy, others, which you're alluding to). You can "pass it without authority" and still complete a pass - a good one occasionally, too. But they're much more of a miss than a hit.

But yeah, part of our lack of scoring was poor execution, of odd man rushes, on the PP... A lot of it because of poor passing in general. Too often they look to pass - poorly or properly - when they should be thinking "shoooooot"
