The idea being that he use the tractor beam ASAP.
Or vent the flight deck sooner to give them room to spare.

It occurred to me that solely using the tractor beam wouldn't have solved all of the Enterprise's problems, in addition to the collision (the bigger problem), the Enterprise was suffering power problems too, but soon after they moved that problem went away. I think it was simply moving from that one spot in space (directly inline with the throat of the space whatsit) that solve the power problem, they didn't have to change position by very much, but they did need to move.

The tractor beam wouldn't have accomplished that.
