If Doan is out again, and given the miserable failure that has been the PP for the past two games, I'd dress Schneider as a PP specialist (for whatever that's worth) and sit Lang. The result can't possibly be any worse.

Just sucks that it's the shoulder. A lower-body thing--losing speed and agility--that can be dealt with, but the ability to hit, shoot, lift sticks, win faceoffs, muscle the puck out of the corner, basically everything we've relied on Doan to do... if it's just physically not there, it doesn't matter how determined he is to play through pain. For the love of Elvis, Shane, why couldn't you just run over Howard, penalties be damned...?
