100% wrong.

Any strategy deployed by the inept is risky. Risk is judged relative to skill

The strategies which are beyond the ability of the less skilled, and are more likely to cause catastrophe in their hands, are called risky by them. For the skilled, performing these difficult manouvers regularly and successfully is how they win.

Example: Leaving Chris Pronger on the point alone on the power play.
Naysayer: Oh, it's too risky!
Pronger: I'm the man, don't worry about it
Scoreboard: 1-0 Oilers
