Here's a good article by Justin Bourne that touches on something the Wings definitely need to get better at--zone exits. It sounds like it's one in a series he'll be writing on them.
For those who aren't familiar with him, Bourne is a former minor-leaguer who breaks downs of some of the finer points of the game in an entertaining way. It usually makes for a great read and illuminates aspects that a casual fan might overlook.
While everyone plays an important role in getting the puck out of the zone, the onus usually falls on the winger to make the crucial play that determines whether your team’s heading on a rush, or doomed to a shift hemmed in your own zone.
A common mistake of wingers (well, of almost every forward) is giving in to their desire to get ahead of the play. You know where the play is headed, so you might as well get there, right?
Well, no. By playing higher in the D-zone on breakouts, you put yourself into traffic, which gives you less time to make a play, forces the D-man to make a harder pass, and puts you first in the queue of players due to get Kronwalled.
So, get low, open up, and pivot towards the boards.
Watching both the Wings and Kings, it's striking how much better the Kings are at exiting their zone, even under pressure. They usually have great puck support and guys and often make it look routine.
