Theres nothing wrong with dumping and chasing if thats all the opposition gives you. Unfortunately this team has a breakout and a forecheck that sucks. The problem is part talent, part motivation, and part coaching.
Solid points. In theory, I think Nash, Step and McD could carry the puck in nicely there. McD doesn't get much PP time for whatever reason. I think he should start getting more minutes there solely because of his ability to carry the puck in. They desperately need to find ways to carry to start the PP. They waste so much precious time trying to get the puck in the zone.
