Other 3 players stand at the blue line while this whole play is going on. Player who receives drop pass either chips the puck deep and is the only person for the sabres that has a chance at getting it because no one else was skating or has to try to deke through 4 guys who are waiting at the blue line
Don't forget plan B! Someone playing the point (Myers, Ehrhoff or Pominville, usually) skates the puck through the neutral zone and executes the drop pass to the outside right after they get over the blue line. Then that guy chips it in deep.
