I dont mean to say flashy offensive play dominates, because a defensive team will run over a team trying to get by on flash. I meant to say that puck possession, smart offensive play, spending a ton of time in your opponents end on attack rather than in your own end, thats what dominates. They can't score on you when you're in their zone lol. That's where faceoff %, faceoff strat, not turning the puck over, and not shooting unless you have a great opportunity comes into play. I'm bloody terrible at not turning the puck over on long bomb passes, that's where I'm looking to improve the most right now. Of course everyone needs a sound D that can keep the puck out of the net, but sometimes good offense is just undefendable no matter how strong your D is.
