Being hemmed into your own zone isn't what I consider entertaining hockey (but hey, I guess that's a personal taste) but it does mean you're less likely to win and getting fewer offensive chances than you're conceding.
Can't entirely explain Pitts 06-07, but the rest were **** teams. Maybe that's why.
