It's about reading the play and having players who read it properly.

You can only rush the puck by taking what the defense gives. If rushing the puck falls apart due to what the defense did on any particular play dumping the puck is the best option. If your team mates are tired, if there is a high likelihood of a turnover, if a wing has a full head of steam towards that corner when the man playing him has to turn.

There are all sort of reason to dump the puck, but it can not be the end all be all. If the play is there is has to be attempted to make dumping the puck when needed more effective.
