What is so wrong (in too many player's opinion) with dump and forecheck in drop in?

Where did you pull that assumption from? If anything, judging by his post, Aucoin sounds like he'd do the opposite. Don't get personal because he doesn't agree with you. Also, you asked for thoughts, you got one.
Remember, pickup hockey is about the lowest form of hockey available to adults. Stop comparing it to 'the pros'. I'm not sure what level your drop-in's are but around here a good amount of the guys are too slow, too inexperienced or both to know what to do in a dump-in situation. Gauge how the guys around you want to play. It's a team sport, not a you sport. Maybe suggest it on the bench instead of forcing it when they don't expect it and throwing them for a loop on the ice. Serious, non-sarcastic question: Do you ever even discuss it with anyone?
