In some ways, the Renney/McGill system is counterintuitive in regards to hitting. Sometimes, instead of splatting the the opposing defenseman into the endboards (and taking himself out of the play), the lead forechecker needs to wheel back and get into position to block the cross ice pass.

The system also needs mobile defenseman who can move the puck. It would be great if they could hit, too, but even a Tom Poti is worth more in the system than a pylon whose first, second, and third options with the puck are to bang it off the glass.
