You're saying that risky plays are actually smart plays given the circumstance and the skillset of the player. But you can't tell me that a long outlet pass, a pass through several players, skating coast to coast, leaving one man on the point is less risky than say.. dumping the puck, ringing the puck along the boards or having two men set up on the blueline.

The Oilers in the 80's is a prime example of team employing high risk plays. And it's turnover rate per game was high as a result.
If you have a bunch of A students you teach them Calculus in high school

If you don't, I agree. You are the Edmonton Oilers. And how we suffer!
