I'll echo the other dude and say you're making it sound like finding open space and players is a bad thing. I'm pretty much the same as you minus the slick stick handling skills. I think you should continue playing your style because it's definitely lower risk/higher reward and creates more problems for teams than trying to get beat by someone one on one or one on two. A puck carrier in open space means there are 4 other threats on the ice as well besides the puck carrier.
Or maybe try this approach.. get to the open space in the O zone and don't unleash the stick handling beast until someone is on you. That'll buy you more time in the future because dudes will be less inclined to get deked out.
