I agree with you. I think the discrepancies between "systems" don't have as drastic of an effect on players as often gets implied. People said Minnesota's trap system suffocated Gaborik's ability and yet his 42 goals from last year with the Rangers match his total from 2007-08 with the Wild.

A lot of player issues get chalked up as systematic problems, when at the end of the day, maybe they're just not playing that well.
