The top line is really the only line that plays that way. I think alot of it has to do with the fact that they rather carry the puck into the zone then dump it and have to physically outmuscle a defenseman to regain the possesion. Your starting to see other teams catch on to the fact that our top line refuses to dump the puck so they are lining everyone up at their blueline and not allowing us to carry the puck in. If Souray played on this team he'd have 30 goals already, because I don't see any other team that has two guys as strong on the puck as Nylander and Jagr on the same line, you simply can't get them off the puck in a one on one situation so it forces the opposing winger to come down and help leaving the point open. Souray could be blasting away all day long
