Reality of the situation is guys are going to dump the puck when its time for a change, or they dont have a play in the neutral zone.

You hear some people on this board tell it, and you'd think every forward is a drone thats expected to dump the puck as soon as they reach the red line, which isnt reality.
True. In those instances when players are tired... fine. But it is the rule of most every attack. And we are not gaining puck control this year either as the fore-checking is off. More often than not - this is also used in PP situations. We have seen the results of that. If my old juniors coach saw this madness and the results it had gotten so far - he would say "next fella that dumps the puck into the zone on the PP rides the pine the rest of the game. Period" And it would have given effect. Both on creating constructive plays, puck possession and scoring goals
