We're quick to criticize SK for this,but CW is more guilty of it than anyone at this point, IMO.

Mike Santorelli has 6 goals. Ryan Jones has 5. Wouldn't have thought these two would be handily outscoring Colin at this point.
Why is it that it seems when players move to from this team, suddenly they have success offensively?
Is it the style of "defensive" play? Are they "stiffled" by the system? Other teams with young talented prospects seem to let them "free wheel" and use their talent more freely? ( other than Phoenix maybe)
This is why on a previous post I had asked about Legwand. He has turned into a great defensive player, but has he lost his offensive game in this system?
