I really don't like the 'offensive zone starts' thing.

You have arguably the most talented defenseman in the league (definitely this season at least) - you're going to start him in the defensive zone and offensive zone equally?

Or are you going to try to get him out there for every offensive zone start where he's not winded so he can provide some scoring opportunities - particularly when the other team has a weak line/group out there?
