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.

Watching the blues hawks game it was very apparent that its not about passing but about skating. I never saw more than 2 passes in the d zone by either team , It was get the puck on your stick and get it the hell out.
