I liked Ehrhoff, and he clearly helped our zone entries on the PP...without him, we became dependant on the neutral zone drop pass which ultimately killed our season.

Puck rushing is a great skill to possess, I don't care what system you play, if you can't gain the line, you're dumping and chasing.
Ehrhoff is not solely a puck rusher though and he certainly didn't do it all the time - the way I see it, if you're constantly rushing the puck that kind of indicates that's all you have in your toolbox and as the opposition gets stronger or gets to know you, you'll find that you're less and less successful.
