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.
I guess this is why its so pretty when McD skates up the ices with the puck
