Mike Yeo Strategy


I'd like to get some feedback from everyone on two issues.

1) Dump and chase. Is this our best strategy ? We rarely beat or even meet the D at the puck when we dump it in so is it time to start carrying the puck in and winning some one on ones?

2) does it drive anyone else crazy that our D never closes the gap at our defensive blue line? They drop deep into our zone allowing a quality shot or letting our opponent get the puck deep with control. Wouldn't closing the gap( like every other NHL team) cause more neutral zone turnovers or dumps that allow for an easier offensive breakout. Neutral zone turnovers = odd man breaks which I'm not sure if I've seen any for the wild all year. Fact is this, the wild have too much offensive talent to be this boring and I would like to throw some blame at coach Yeo since nobody ever does. His damage control approach to the game of hockey isn't yielding any results and is putting me too sleep.

Thanks for reading.
