This past season the Rangers gave up 28.2 shots a game, which was 11th lowest in the league. The year before, it was 27.8, 6th fewest.
Absolutely. Hank will tell you he can stop it if he can see it. I love Hank but that's just flat out false. If we go back to taking the pass away and letting Hank take the shooter on 2 on 1s I think he'll stop most of 'em but to think he'll not get beat high glove once in a while is insane.

Less screens, less defelections will certainly be a helpful thing, if that's where this goes.
