And some of you have the gall to complain about the team???

It doesn't matter if we aren't top 5 in the NHL in offense. We are on pace to give up 160 goals this year, which would be the single stingiest defensive performance the NHL has seen since the lockout. Probably well before it but that is as far back as I looked. (Remember to not include goals added on for shootout losses)
He definitely is and it's great that he's doing so; however, there is little to no individual creativity.

We can play the grinding game, but what about just an iota of offensive creativity?
