IMHO, we have more offensive defensemen than most teams in the league, and I really don't see us using it as much of an advantage as I think we could. Instead of dumping the puck ALL the time, I’d like to see us regroup with our defensemen more and hit the neutral zone with speed. I hate how much we give up the puck by design, I'd much rather see us keep possession more.
I think playing players on the right line combinations will help with the dump and chase some. I have noticed that the Bourque - Jarnkrok - Smith line doesn't seem to do that as much. Not saying they don't do it, it just seems as though they carry it in more than the other lines.
