Yes, but two things.

A) Last year we had a powerplay that didn't suck. Not so this year.

B) If offense dries up league wide, then it generally applies across the board. IE, the teams that scored 4 goals a game now score 2 goals a game. That would mean that teams like score 2 goals a game (us) will then be hard pressed to score 1. Its not like defense cracks down everywhere so that high scoring teams are now low scoring teams and low scoring teams are the no worse for wear.

The offense HAS to pick up somewhere come the playoffs, be it 5-on-5 or the PP because this season we have neither and they don't hand out Stanley Cups for most blocked shots.
