PK Units and Enver Lisin

So the last Enver Lisin thread is too far back for me to find, and I had a thought the other day that I felt would be interesting.

Most of us know what Lisin brings to the table now. A lot of speed, effort, but little scoring touch and no playmaking ability.

My idea is, simply enough, attempt to teach Lisin the penalty kill. Enver has only 1 minute of PK time all season. A guy with his speed could have a better chance of creating breakaways, and eventually have a "Gaborik effect" on the kill where defenders play cautious in fear of getting burned. In addition to this, his good forechecking over the past couple of games made me consider how he might be on the PK as far as positioning in his own zone.

My goal is, to make Lisin into a faster, albeit less rugged Ryan Callahan on the penalty kill.
