I'm a HUGE fan of the defensive pinch. So I'm biased. I hated that Jacques Martin's Canadien's didn't pinch often. Whereas I find Michel Therrien's is very in favour of the pinch.

So I feel like they are just trying to do their job. Keeping offensive zone, and really on a proper defensive pinch one forward should come up high near the line to defend on a failed pinch. Which I think has been done fairly well this year.

Really I think pacioretty (and I'm a big patch fan) has been paying absolutely dismal defense in our zone.
