Makes it that much easier for coaches to throw out their 5 man units against them, when they always start in the o-zone.
You honestly don't think that it hasn't helped them?

In 10, his Hart year it was still a healthy 57.7 % rate.

We don't know for sure but it's quite possible and even probable that his decline in production would have been more steep in these last 3 years than it already has been.

Anyone who has ever played hockey at any level knows that playing in the offensive zone is less taxing than in the defensive one.
