A 40 goal scorer who goes hard deep in the offensive zone but doesn't get back quick to backcheck (usually because they're tired) is looked at as a coach's problem, a liability, lazy because their defensive play is not up to snuff.
A 10 goal scorer who hangs back, plays the high forward position, first back on the backcheck, kills penalties, blocks shots, etc. is a coach's dream, hard worker, easy to coach.
Pure offensive players get crapped on too much about their defence. Top defensive forwards don't get crapped on enough about their lack of production.
