of course it is, its fundamentally sound, and even simple math proves it out. if a goalie saves 92% of the shots he takes, if you limit the amount of shots he takes, he will let in fewer goals. Martin Brodeur has built his entire career on the team in front of him blocking shots/limiting scoring chances. Hes a good goalie thats made to be one of the greatest in history thanks to this strategy.

Soon there will be a rule change to cut it back.
how exactly? 2 minute penalty for blocking shots?

And at the end of the day it is NOT a way to win more games.
could not disagree with you more. it may not be the perfect way given a different set of players, but blocking shots without a doubt leads to winning more games. giving up fewer goals = winning more games.

I disagree.
