On offense, Petro leaving the point to battle in the corner is a terrible idea for a few reasons.
  • A quick turnover means either a forward isn't covering or a forward is tasked with defenseman responsibility. Not something anyone should prefer.
  • He is no catalyst in the corner. Normally, he has to defer to another player down low and backpedal.
  • He is an excellent quarterback from the point. So, why not use your strength Petro?
Another issue is having a defenseman lugging the puck over our blueline during our breakout. This jumbles our forwards in the neutral zone and allows the opposition to hold their blueline and collapse on us in the neutral zone. Not a good recipe for entry into the offensive zone. We have had way too many turnovers in this area.
