Softness is one of their strengths, it gets them their beloved power plays, and allows them to just play a tight trap in 5 on 5 and wait for a team to get frustrated enough to give them more power plays. That's why a team that is so small can be so deadly at times.
It's a comprehensive strategy with them, and one that's built around other teams' ability to manhandle them physically, and turning that into a weapon for their own purposes. It's slick, professional, intelligent, and soft as melted ice cream. In other words, it's perfect hockey, in its own limp-wristed way.

Now 5-6 pages will be wasted on people quoting and replying to this.
