Why this constipation, this lack of being hockey players passing and generating plays with each other on a half-decent regular basis?
I think all of the emphasis on shot-blocking takes 10 points off all the defensemen's stats, plus it's going to take two years off everyone's careers.

Really think the system stifles the skill the team does have.

There's no reason Del Zotto should not be a 12 goal 30 assist player. Girardi 6-10 goals, 20-25 assists, McDonagh about the same, Staal similar, even Stralman could put up some decent numbers. This system is killing the defensemen.
