Dump and chase is not an offensive strategy, and we're doing it because we can't gain possession long enough to break into the zone any other way.
It can be if you have the players, we don't have the players. In fact I don't think the Preds have the players for any particular strategy. We have a bunch of guys who have a well rounded skillset, but aren't particularly good at any one thing. There's no specialists and outside of Weber's slapshot, nobody with a skill that stands out. Just a bunch of borderline 2nd/3rd line clones. We don't even have the team speed anymore that was a feature following the last lockout. The Preds are just a mediocre pile of blah.
