The breakouts we use are also not conducive to creating offense off the rush.

The Canucks have very offensive dmen and they are often used very well. It's one of the reasons for their success over the years. I do agree that the Sedins have really left their imprint on the team in terms of cycling down low. Often, instead of trying deke by the dman, the Canucks will chip behind the net and try to cause the turnover. It's a Moneypuck play. More likely to get the puck deep and get possession than creating a fast break turnover.
