^I agree. No need to overthink, just make the best play. It may be a dump in, or back to the D, there's no way to plan the split second decisions we have to make in the game. More often passing is the way to go, but if you have the opportunity take it. Whatever works, score a goal!

Watching hockey in the 1950's, the theory was every player tried to deke through all 5 opponents and score the goal. Only when that wasn't working out would they dish off a pass. It keeps the other team honest. Every player is a threat and thinking 1st of driving the puck into the net. Players today need to be a little more "selfish" like Bobby Orr. Pass-first players (like myself) are actually weaker and incomplete if they miss a better chance to score in favor of passing it to someone else.
