Agree to disagree on the defense. I've not seen what you see, and I don't see it reflected in the analytics. I know you were originally comparing him to Stutzle in this aspect, so just to be clear I can't really comment on Hughes vs. Stutzle defensively as I haven't really watched Stutzle enough to have an opinion. As far as finishing goes, I think it's more than just his shot, which I don't think is all that awful actually. It's also shot selection and just generally converting xG's into goals. Hughes caught a lot of iron this year (among the league leaders in posts hit I believe) so some of it is just lousy luck, but there were also a lot of just opportunities where there were pucks loose in the slot and you just felt that an older, stronger, more confident Jack Hughes would find a way to finish.
