My guess: our offensive system is one dimensional. Yes, every team does the dump-and-chase sometimes, but we dump religiously. It's not one facet of our offense; it's the only facet of our offense. It's really predictable and opposing teams know it coming in. It just turns into a game of fetch. A good dump and chase is used to counterattack against a team that defends the rush too aggressively and leaves a lot of space around and behind the net. But we don't need a weak dump from the redline every time the D have the puck outside their own zone, and someone needs to tell the forwards that the point is to get the puck in the goal, not behind it.
