Well, guess what, do you know which area is the best to lose the puck to maximize your chances of forming a successful defense or hustle it back? Deep in the offensive zone along the boards. Playing along the boards also makes the coverage of the puck alot easier. That means Nylander knows more about hockey than you do.
As a person who thinks they do more good than harm, I do have a problem with their approach to hockey. They seem willing to turn over the puck in hopes of making a play. They prefer high risk hockey. Sometimes a simple clear up the boards is the right play to make, instead they try to make something out of nothing and giving up an odd man rush. If they dumped the puck out of their zone more often, even if it means conceding/wasting a shift, I would be a lot happier.
