What kills me is what most of the forwards do on the ice when we're on the attack. Players w/o the puck don't know how to find open ice. They clog up the the slot, where they can easily be defended against, especially since we're terrible shooters who lack basic one-timer knowledge. Must be NHL-93 syndrome. Or was it 94? The one before they had one-timers.

It seems like no one on this team is comfortable with puck on the PP. I guess because they realize they don't have the vision or creativity to make things happen. I'd love to see a player like Gaborik call for the puck more and just tee up a shot. But he's really hesitant on the PP this year.

Oh, and I believe it was NHL 94 that first introduced the one-timers. I remember when NHL 94 was considered "revolutionary" for its time.
