As a D man even if I cant get you the puck you are relieveing some pressure by getting up ice when your team gains possesion.
Well, what I do really isn't "cherry picking" in my mind but I get called one all the time by the opposition. Which is absolutely fine considering I average 2 points a game. I do play defense but several times a game, when I see the chance, I'll sneak behind the D and I'm gone. I really couldn't care less if someone says something, I usually find it funny when both dmen will back out of the offensive zone to follow me. It only helps my team, putting them a man up in the defensive zone.
