They need to do something to get on the same page, because on too many of the dumps players aren't going in with speed, and just about every good attempt at carrying the puck in gets whistled off due to a player going in with too much speed expecting the dump.

yeah, that was awful. of course, you can adjust by chipping it into the corners or going extra hard around. wonder why they didn't?

I feel like part of the problem with the pp is that they get the chance to relax a bit. They have to play so hard to keep up with those teams that have greater talent that the pp turns into a bit of a breather. How do you turn up your maximum, and if you're thinking about having to maintain that level for the rest of the game do you (even subconsciously) take the opportunity to play at regular pace for a bit. It's not excusable, of course... but maybe understandable?
