It'd be one thing if every time the goalie pulls the puck out of the net it's because I gave up a breakaway or a left my man open, but when the goalie's giving up unscreened wrist shots from the point or the forwards aren't picking up the extra man up high...well then I'm doing nothing on offense and not getting rewarded for playing okay on defense.

And that makes me tune out as a player. When it feels like it makes no difference what you do for the outcome of the game, I'm checked out mentally.
I understand what you're saying. I play at a really low level though, so usually when we get scored on, I probably did do something that contributed to the goal.
