So true. To further that point, our forwards, once they have the puck, also never make any attempt whatsoever to get to the middle of the ice. We end up just shuffling the puck up and down the boards.

It's the most radical difference that I notice when I watch our team and when I watch players like Malkin and Giroux. Those guys default approach is to attack the middle of the ice and opposing teams have to actively force them to the sides. Our forwards are allergic to the area between the circles.
