I don't have a problem with dump and chase hockey, but it's pretty damn hard to play dump and chase when nobody is carrying enough speed through the neutral zone to actually beat a defensemen to the puck once it's dumped in.

You can't rely as heavily on stretch passes as we do, and then transition to dump and chase once you pass the red line. You sacrifice too much speed by circling your forwards in the neutral zone while they wait for a pass. Plus, what's the point of getting behind the opposing forwards with the stretch pass if you're going to forfeit your advantage by dumping the puck in?
