Just to get the conversation going, there is a reason at the NHL level you rarely see the long stretch pass, but see players use the wall on almost every play.

Stretch passes are risky. Off the wall and out of the zone (hopefully to a sprinting forward) is way less so - it is very hard to stop a ball above your head!
