Anyone else noticing these things?

Every game we crash the other teams net at some point...but are immediately shoved away and pushed around.

Unbelievable...I've seen Rozey clear a guy out once...it was Hilbert in Long Island. A Ward and Kasper do it occasionally. Unreal.
Well, I'm more surprised that Nylander hasn't had more back problems in his career than he's experienced. In multiple occasions in taking off his jersey, he probably wears the LEAST amount of upper body protection that I've ever seen. Minimal shoulder caps and basically NOTHING on his back.
Now, oldtimers have always become accustom to what they've worn over the years and typically wear much less protection than the new kids entering the league, ie. Shanahan.
However, with the breakthrough in lightweight but very flexible/non-imposing equipment protection available, I find it more than disturbing to see a player w/ Nylander skate with nothing more than a jersey on his back.
