Did Whitney play the point or left half wall on the PP with the Canes?
I think we'd be fine with Malkin at the point or right half wall, it doesn't really matter. There were 3 much bigger problems with last seasons PP. We just needed some balance on the left side of the ice, an effective big body net presence, and a dump-it-in mentality on zone entries. This could be solved with Whitney, Tangradi, and a change in PP mentality.
Chicago is effective on the PP with two left hand shots in Toews and Kane where Sid and Geno usually are. Buff in front of the net, Keith QB'ing on the right point, and RH shot (Sharp) on the other point who can creep down for cross ice passes. We could emulate this but need that big body presence and right handed shot capable of finishing one-timers. Guerin and Letang weren't getting it done last year.
