Minnesota needs to dump the dump-and-chase

Publish date:

I am a die-hard Minnesota Wild fan, but it kills me to see them run the dump-and-chase offense.

It seems like every time they get the puck, they skate to center ice and send it around the boards, right to the other team.

I want to know why Jacques Lemaire continues to stick with this plan of attack when, night after night, the Wild's offense is only able to get two or three goals?

There has got to be a better way.
