I think every aspect of their offensive zone play is micromanaged to Hell. It's like they can't shoot until they make a requisite number of passes or have the puck in an exacting location...

Remember the old basketball drill, make 3 passes before you're allowed to shoot? Which was supposed to teach kids be patient and to pass the ball into the best attacking position but somehow always ended up with the ball being kicked out onto a wing for a low % 3 being jacked up by the power forward? That's what it feels like to me.

They have to follow some procedure and you guys are right, they think too much.

"When he passes here, I'll go here and wait and for the return" -- what if it never comes or is broken up? You can't play effective offensive hockey off a checklist.
