I swear. no other coach in the NHL would continue to put a guy out there with no shot and average passing skills. Put freakin Moore on the PP or another forward. Girardi is a lousy PP guy.

I rather see more of Mac and Stralman at the point honestly.

Stralmans shot from the right circle almost always goes in. How does he not get more PP time.

Because he can't hold the blueline without letting a 2-1 go by him. That's pretty much why Girardi is over there.

I would like to see more McDonagh on the PP.

Hell why not let Boyle play the point on the Pp after all he is getting more ice time then most

If they didn't have Richards at the other point being completely useless at least there'd be one d man back if Stralman got caught outta position.

Don't know what happened to Girardi's shot because he was on fire in the playoffs. The Rangers don't really have anyone with a decent shot from the point. I wonder if the Rangers looked at Yandle during the deadline. I know Pheonix was asking for a lot.

IMO, Richards should QB the PP from the point with Del Zotto.

Zooks and MDZ are our best pair in my opinion. Richards used to be great at it so he could be up there as well.

Richards isn't useless on the PP, he might be struggling 5 on 5 but he's moved the puck around nice on the PP lately. This team needs Richards to be better though. I really don't get the Stralman love really, he had a couple goals on the PP but he's not really someone I want on the ice much as he makes poor decisions especially when coming out of his end, add to that he's soft as butter. Personally he wouldn't make my top 6 D right now if Staal were back, Eminger would beat him out just because he realizes his strengths and weaknesses and adjusts his play to that.
My PP has Richards, MDZ, Zuccarello and either McDonagh or Girardi as our 4 D.

I don't know about that Girardi has wiffed a couple times himself and given up odd man breaks off the PP. His PK play has been also been poor of late.

I truely think he's been out of sorts for a while now, who knows if there's an injury issue because the club never disclosed anything. We don't even know what his injury was from earlier this season or if that is still an issue.

Personally I think Girardi is just playing too many minutes and that Stralman, Moore and even Eminger should get more minutes. Hopefully Staal regains his vision quickly enough to return soon!

We need Staal bad. We can't have Stralman getting as much ice time as he's been getting. I'm ok with giving Moore some extra time, but we don't have much option but keep our bottom four split up so that we don't have Stralman and Eminger on the bottom pairing.

Jeez the guy already plays a crap ton of minutes. I would figure those 2 minutes he might be able to catch his breath.

Moore has a fantastic shot. The PP is not about worrying if you give up a shorthanded goal. The PP is about scoring goals and making other teams pay for taking penalties. You don't put a dope like Girardi out there because he can play defense on the PP. That's moronic. Stralman's shot never gets through. He is freakin horrible at getting through his shot. It's almost like the dope is trying to hit their players on purpose.

It's not the shorthanded goal that they are necessarily worried about it's the fact that you lose control of the zone when the puck keeps squirting past the d man. Moore will likely get more time there as he gets used to the team and the coach gets to know what his strengths and weakenesses are. If we started playoffs today I'd expect him to be used more on the #2 pair than the bottom pair really. With Stralman and Eminger getting limited ice time. When Staal gets back I expect Staal and Eminger to be the third pair until Staal is in game shape atleast.

So does Girardi, but I would assume with a little more power play time we could find him a shift or two off in between.
