Or they could leave him alone and let him become a 50 goal scorer. Not every player is a defensive player just like not every player is an offensive player.

But grinders and 4C's who can't score a lick are worshiped by fans an coaches, while great snipers with all the skill in the world who aren't the most well-rounded are cast aside like lepers. Gretzky is lucky he played in the 80's; they would hate him now.
