Mostly cuz Powe fully embraces just taking the puck to the net.

Nodl had a lot in his favor, but he's proven nothing to this point. I also don't know where this idea that he's good defensively comes from. Dude has been absolutely torched in every extended tour of duty he's had to this point.

3.07 GAON/60 in his 10 games last year at even strength.
3.06 GAON/60 in his 38 games the year before at even strength.

He did a decent job in the playoffs filling in, but I'm not giving him a strong score on defense until he, ya know, proves he deserves a strong score on defense. As of now all he's proven at the NHL level is that he's struggling to score (true in the AHL, too) and he's gotten lit up in the other direction.
