Its not like they're sitting back afraid to fore-check, guys are already moving out before they can get in there, and that's because the players are not getting the pucks to the proper locations to set up a fore-check. As has already been brought up multiple times, some speed would help, but better puck management would help significantly more.
Correct. Forecheck is all about putting pressure to the defense in their own zone. Currently, we just have a guy or two putting their stick to the passing lane, which is better than nothing but quite easy to avoid.
