What hockey have you been watching this year? I just finished watching the Leafs lose 7-4 to the Islanders.
Regardless of Ovechkin, you're basing your perception of today's hockey on one high-scoring game between bad teams with crap goaltending?

In your words, "what hockey have you been watching" last year, and more importantly, the playoffs?

In the vast majority of cases, stifling, defensive hockey was much more effective than any semblance of attempts at high-flying run-and-gun hockey that was viable 3-4 years ago.
