The development of a potent powerplay in Pittsburgh will not come until you split Malkin and Crosby up. Both of them love the right boards. If you must get Whitney, use him on the left side pounding one-timers on goal. Find another right handed defender who can move the puck (my Kubina light is flashing) and another fringe right handed forward (Kennedy or FA).

It was easy to overplay the Malkin, Crosby, Gonchar side this year. Having little threat from the far side killed us and using one group also stopped us. Two fresh groups for about 50 seconds each would be more effective than a 1:30 shift.

PP1
-- Gonchar (or suitable replacement), Malkin (boards), Kunitz (in front), Letang (left point) and Whitney or right handed FA (lower left boards for one-timers)

PP2
-- Goligoski, Crosby (boards), Staal (in front), FA RH defender (left point) and Kennedy or right handed FA (lower left boards)
