Take the puck to the net or shoot the puck, instead, just dumps it in. Dallas could not have gone the other way and done anything with the puck. You have to know the time, situation and possibilities. He could've taken the puck to the net but instead dumps and pulls up. Sorry, he just stops any offensive threat we have and I'm tired of the stone hands.
You realize that sitting a player for that play means we'd sit the ENTIRE team, right?
