I think this is spot-on, and I've commented on this before. Even unchallenged, Flyers players frequently will hesitate and make ill-advised passes in their own zone. Yes, every team is guilty of it, but it seems to be an epidemic on the Flyers. An 'exit strategy' would be an immense lift in their overall team game. And by this I don't mean the current "flip it out to centre" method.
Like you said, it doesn't have to be multiple, complex passes. Just that the players are aware of who is around them and are prepared to skate it out themselves (if they can safely) or make a short pass to someone else with a better chance of carrying the puck out of the zone.
