I think this is a great point. Over the last couple years McCabe scored a bunch of goals on the PP based on a great slapshot, but that shot was taken away if a team overplays on the point. From the games I saw, Green got many of his goals by being aggressive in the offensive zone, and it will be much more difficult for a PK'er to overplay on Green's shot because that allows him stickhandle and penetrate, and it opens more room for AO & company.
