The danger with this is SHGs, and the threat of SHGs causing the PP to be cautious.

Montreal had the least SHGs against in the league last year, and having quality D-men man the points I feel had a lot to do with that. They were often victimized for odd-man rushes on their own PP in the playoffs, though, and I think that correlates directly with their relative lack of success on the PP in the playoffs.
