5 on 3 Power Play Setup

The only disappointing on-ice thing in a nice win was how they handled the 1:50 or so worth of 5 on 3. Not so much troubling because they didn't score, that happens, but I think because of their set up they didn't even generate much of a chance to score.

Instead of someone parked in front of the net the whole time, I would like to see the person in the middle drift to the high slot occasionally. When this happens the player down low who gets the puck has three options...a player at the point, the player in the high slot, and the player across the crease down low. With two people down low, it just created a logjam in front of the net when a third person also had the puck down low.

Eventually we're going to be in a spot with a 5 on 3 for a lot less time when the game is on the line, and we're going to need a goal to tie or win.

Just a thought in case Tom Renney is reading...
