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!
So you lie ( 1: to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive
2: to create a false or misleading impression -- Merriam Webster) about benching and attribute guys attempting to "carry the puck" as the reason why players get less ice time and not the real issues that lead to it?
