But Carbo is still not the guy I'd go to for advice on how to build a puck possession dominant team.
Unless its to do the exact opposite of what he says. Huge trend for players to become better at puck possession as they got away from his coaching.

A lot of the mispreception of the value of faceoffs is in saying stuff like it allows you to always start with control of the puck. It actually means you start with the puck about 1 in 20 times more than you would, which is scarcely noticeable.
