Until that happens, forcing yourself to pass will just make you a bad passer.
IMO, the best time to really work on this stuff is "garbage time" late in wide-open games. Your weaker linemates will appreciate a little extra opportunity to work out of a set offense, and you'll start to develop some chemistry. But in a tight game? Hell no. If you're on the rush alone, shoot the puck!
