The move that used to work was spreading the shooters to the wide side, getting the goalie to anticipate wide then have the offensive center snap a short side shot at the net of the draw. Easy to counter.
It also means more bodies to screen and have the puck go off of. If a puck is deflected to the corners, you can always out man the opponents 2-1 significantly increasing your chances for puck retrieval allowing for a more sustained attack and increasing your chances to score.
I have no idea why you would ever say that unless you got bored of being informative on virtually everything and decided to go with the trend of trolling.
