What has this league become? Over the past two decades we have seen a drastic drop in offense, goal scorers struggling to get to fifty, and only three players have broken the 120 point mark since the new millennium. Offense have taken a dive, and part of the reason is the adjustments that have been made to the penalty kill.
Currently, six team in the league have managed to kill off everyone of their opponents' powerplays. They are Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Florida, Montreal, Colorado, and Tampa Bay. These teams have had some strong competition so far, so this is not anything to scoff at. Of these, none are more impressive than the Pittsburgh Penguins.
