Defense vs Offense

I do have a lot of time on my hands as I am looking for a job so it has been fun exchanging message with you guys.

If someone is only able to score goals, which is something hard to do, he is labelled as a "one-dimensional" player.

If someone can only play "defense", we should also call that player a "one-dimensional player". Right?

We saw that during the last Super Bowl.....

Explain the Oilers?

So there is no need for us to watch this year playoffs then. As clearly the best defense in the east is in New-Jersey and in the West, Dallas is the best defense.

So I am putting my money on a final between the Devils and the Stars.

I sort of get what ya mean. A guy who can score and is weak defensively is called 'one-dimensional', but a player than can't score but is good defensively often gets referred to as a 'two way player'.

Thank you. That's what I meant by that.

If someone can't score or generate offense, why don't we call that player a "one-dimensional player"......

I'm not sure about that... The ideal Two-Way player is a guy like Peca or Lehtinen. Two-Way means the guy can also score.

Juneau and Dackell are there to shut down the other team top lines. I'm pretty sure there's not really an expression to qualify this type of player.

Juneau & Dackell have been called one dimentional because they suck offensively, so has ________ (insert any untalented goon's name here). Players like Dowd, Begin, and Ward on the other hand shouldn't be called one dimentional because they are good defensively, but they also hit, and cause havoc on the ice.

Bulis is a stereotypical "two-way" player.
