Any truly elite players that I have gotten a chance to play with would not pass up a quality scoring chance if the opportunity presented itself, but also would not hesitate to distribute the puck if they did not have a clean look.

I used to play with a guy that would skate in on the goalie and if he didn't get the look that he wanted, circled around the net like Bobby Orr and would just skate around our offensive zone, holding the puck. Once the defense had set up in the zone and the lanes had closed he'd eventually pass it, but only if there is no scoring play for him. The thing I never understood was that the guy wasn't particularly fast, but had quick hands; He could have used those quick hands to generate some bang-bang plays, but the thought never crossed his mind. Instead he would just dangle around everybody until he was trapped and ended up caughing up the puck trying to dangle his way out.
