Benched or moved down a line. Of the skilled players that I have witnessed, Smith, Wilson, are the first ones ( that are capable )Forsberg tried as well. It just makes little sense to me except if guys are not as skilled. If you have possession and there is a play that you can 9 times out of 10, keep it.........KEEP IT. Instead they dump the puck and have a 50/50 chance of regaining it.
I have seen Legwand, Erat, Kostytsin and Radulov do it as well and lose it occasionally, but they would not get benched. I would far rather see that, than this boring "pick up the garbage" style of play!
