No, but that's what happens when you take a lot of shots. Nick Leddy almost never shoots. He doesn't have the confidence in that part of his game to shoot the puck with regularity, which results in him almost always passing the puck off to whoever's on the right side boards.

I don't know how you can watch the games and honestly believe Leddy is better than Keith offensively. I don't get it. I know it's become fashionable to hate on Keith, but really. Leddy does a lot of things well and yes, he does do some things better than Keith (like gaining the zone), but Keith still creates more chances than Leddy and has better play recognition, as he should, being far more experienced.
Keith is a fine offensive player, 5on5. Playing big minutes with some of the best forwards in the league will lead to solid point totals. He hasn't looked good on the PP in a few years.

LMAO. Look who he plays with! Look how many minutes you have. Here's a news flash: when you play nearly half the game with the likes of Kane, Toews, Hossa, etc. you are going to score points. Aside from Frolik, he has the worst shooting percentage on the team, and his best chance of scoring points is off of lucky redirects (like the last goal he scored), or when the other players take a pass and do the majority of the work.

Keith plays with superstars. Keith logs a lot of minutes. Keith undeservedly gets a lot of PP time. He's going to "put up points". That doesn't make him good offensive player, much less a "threat".

Keith is still very effective in transition, specifically on long stretch passes. But he's really not even a good offensive player at 5 on 5. He shoots 3.2% for christ sakes. Nobody takes him seriously from the point anymore. Nor should they.

Do you copy and paste those first 5 words every time Bollig fights?

Bad luck, nothing else you can say. Crawford has little chance there.

Lets see, Keith plays on a unit with Toews, Hossa, Shaw and Seabrook. Leddy plays on a unit with Kane, Bolland, Sharp, and Saad/Stalberg.

Which unit has been more successful this year? The one with Patrick Kane.

Yet.. OMG.. you're not going to believe this.. Duncan Keith actually leads the defense in PP scoring. Granted, it's not a huge difference (Keith 7, vs Leddy 6) but there's no doubt which PP unit has been better in general and it's not because of Leddy, it's because of Kane.
