Scoring is down for different reasons not because of the lack of clutching and grabbing . Ohashi is absolutely correct calling this the "no touchy feely NHL". It's becoming a joke, this new NHL.

Goalie equipment is too big and goalies are a heck of a lot better trained and more skilled overall ATM.

Here is something I think is overlooked. This new NHL is more speed and skating oriented. Thereby we have a lot of players tremendous speed, skating skills but have hands of stone. I watch players like Daniel Pallile, there is no way that guy would have made the NHL 10 years ago. He might be one of the fastest player in the NHL but he couldn't shoot the puck into a soccer net with no goalie. I notice alot of teams are filled with players like Pallile.
