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

I don't know about Santa Rosa, but in other places in the Bay Area I'm 90% sure guys are not too slow, to inexperienced or both.
Watching pro's /= playing like pro's. I watch the NHL all the time and I still suck
If the guys are skillful where you play then, like I said, talk to them about it ... at least let them know you like to dump and chase so they're not caught off guard. Doesn't matter if they realize the purpose of it. If they're expecting an easier going skate and you make them fight for it in the corner they won't be happy. You have to realize the norm in drop-ins is NOT dump-and-chase hockey, at least not from what I've personally seen.
