There was a recent posting on an article on the well-known fact that the Leaf give up way too many shots, and get out-shot every night.
My question is this- Who's to blame in the shot differential night-in-night-out? Where should the attention-to-detail lay more on...forwards or defence?
IMHO it's a combination of the forwards not shooting enough, and looking for the pretty play too much. They also don't back check as aggressively as they could. But I also think the D-men don't box out very well, and allow too many second chance opportunities...mainly because there are terrible at getting the puck out of the defensive zone. This has been an achilles for quite some time with the Leafs.
