Goals are just a fraction of the picture though. What separates Pittsburgh and Toronto is just an overall better team, and better quality hockey, regardless of what numbers say.
I think in this league, if TEAMS so chose to score 5 goals a game, they would. Teams realize that's not how you win though. Could we score 5 goals a game if we altered the system? I have little doubt. Fact is, we are committed to playing the whole rink, and goal scoring suffers because of it.
The lack of goal scoring isn't the league, it's the teams and the systems they employ. I mean, Washington was scoring damn near 4 goals a game in 2009-10. That doesn't translate into winning though, regardless of if it is what you want to see or not.
