haha, we scored.







....but still, our power-play sucks. Something has to be done. Is it personnel or is it coaching?

Id move Stepan back to the point and Richard on the boards. I think thats when we were at our best.

Seems like it's our guys, not torts, they seem to wait for the perfect shot and continue passing and passing until they get it, instead of throwing the puck at the net. So chances are, if you pass the puck 5 times before you shoot, one of those passes isn't going to get through and you'll have to start over. They have to just start throwing the puck to the net and fighting for the rebounds, the more shots the better on the PP.

Id like to see a one timer once in a while but the players are on the wrong side of ice.

But they can't open up shooting lanes. If you just throws pucks at the net without some good movement you watch the shots get blocked and cleared.

True, somethings gotta change though, this pass, pass, pass, isn't working, we need to find more ways to get the open shot whether thats through physicality, board play or constant player movement, whatever it takes to start clicking and creating more chances cause passing like we do obviously isn't doing the job and it just kills the clock. I trust torts to get these guys going though, especially before playoff time, we have the personnel for it, and who knows, maybe we'll add a LW for gabbys line at the deadline. Wolski, Zucc's, Feds and picks make a pretty attractive package, especially for a team thats out of the playoff running, and their just so happens to be alot of free agent LW's at season's end, so somebody is bound to give.

Isn't Torts supposed to be a PP guru?

I think the the way they setup needs to change, they have been playing the PP the same way and it's not working.

Something needs to give, we need something to happen to this powerplay otherwise it'll be a short playoffs for us.
