I would say you are onto something. Neutral zone checking (forward backchecks and d gaps) and breakouts on 5 on 5 and on power play seem really sloppy and incoherent.
We have had some bad luck with high sticking penalties. I remember a shooting motion double minor for instance. But I think system is biggest culprit. If you know your guy has your back on the other side, you don't have to press the stick check quite so hard reducing your chances for a penalty.
and our pp in general is embarrassing with the riches we have in that department. trade Ott and Burish for Jagr and whitney and our pp is actually worse.
