Is there an inherent inability to use a short passing game to progress up the ice? I can see no reason why the Rangers should not be able to make their way up the ice at least as well as, oh let's pick a team that does it much better, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The key is, why can't the Rangers get in without dumping? I don't think they should be reckless either, and sure, dump it in if you have to. The problem is, and oh yes, it is definitely a problem, that they don't have good enough support for each other in a nice, compact short passing game. If they cannot get better at that, they will have to do the dump-in, which is really a roll of the dice these days as to which team gets possession.
