Don't even joke about that, Lowetide.

I still just can't believe that this noted powerplay specialist, Cory Cross, was logging all those minutes back there against Dallas in the playoffs. D'Oh! It was just idiotic, made no sense whatsoever. That's when I finally, fully believed that Billy Moores was really in charge of the powerplay. Madness.

I'm firmly in the Scotty Bowman / Mike Keenan camp on this PP issue (and its a camp that seems to grow every year amongst NHL coaches). The key is to get the right players on the ice. Keep it simple. Then just let them play.
