Well, the idea is to outscore the other team.
Also - just throwing ideas around - is being a defensive stalwart as a winger an essential part of the position? I thought traditionally that's the center's responsibility. Impact wingers like Ovechkin, Selanne and Kovalchuk aren't known for their defensive aura and I assumed Heatley followed a similar style.
In general and patty should probably attack the net more and shoot more and he probably will next year. The players you listed are very agressive at shooting and attacking the net, patty isnt like that it somewhat hinders his ability to score. I would say Milan somewhat suffers from this in his own right also. Gooch on the other hand will try to beat you every time.
