I don't mind a forward remaining still as long as they are in the right place. It worked fine for Phil Esposito and is how Holmstrom made a living. It's a style that can work. What I noticed with both Erat and Legwand is that neither was really in position and had to reach while pressured and simply didn't get any lift on their shot (I think Erat pulled his shot to the right a bit as well).
