I miss when Crosby would attack the D any time he got the puck with speed in the neutral zone. He used to skate through the defense on a nightly basis. Now he button hooks everytime he gains the zone and looks for the trailer. Or, in this game, he'd gain the blueline and right away take a weak wrist shot. That's not good enough.

Also, the breakout is getting annoying. How many times per game do we see the forwards exit the zone before the d-men can make a play and then watch the defensemen stand in with the puck in their own zone with no one to pass to? They rarely exit the zone as a team because they focus on playing too quickly. When it works it's great, but it almost never works.
