Offensive strategy

ive been watching my fair share of sabres games this season and have noticed at times our "big name" players have lacked in the offense department. so i began to look into how the enter the offensive zone and noticed they have been using what looks to me like a dump-and-chase. to my knowledge this style of attack is suppose to be used with big gritty players that can battle for the puck down low.

if thats right and with all that said my question is could the use of the dump-and-chase in regards to the ennis-roy-stafford line be hindering the production that we expect out of them because of how small they are?

The problem is actually just the opposite. They've been trying to stick-handle across the blue line WAYYY too often when it just isn't there instead of getting pucks in deep and initiating the forecheck. This results in turnovers and players getting caught with their pants down. Which is a problem.
