They sometimes have a guy swoop in front of the net but hes so ineffective there.
Agree. what's frustrating is that we take it behind the net to "set it up" when often we don't need to which leads to a poor breakout. That first pass needs to be to a player who can be trusted to carry the puck out of the zone or make a solid pass and we don't have enough of those guys. So, taking the puck behind the net when we have other options is a losing proposition.
