We weren't as good on the PK in the Carbo years as we've been lately.
We respectively finished, 13th-15th-11th on the PK during Carbo's 3years. Lappy during those years was used 1:28-1:32-1:58 on the PK.
Last season, it was more of the same, we finished 12th with Lappy averaging 0:38 on it. Pyatt that played half the year here was used for about 1min. We really became a PK power in the POs where we ranked 3rd, with Gorges and Gill emerging as two big pillars, but Pyatt was also a huge contributor tied for the most SH IceTime among Forwards along with Plek at 2:58.
This year as of today, we're 5th, with Pyatt avg only 2sec less (2:31) than the most used Forward in Halpern.
You can pretty much say anybody could play on the PK. Gomez, Gionta, Moen, Lappy, White, Plek, Halpern, Darche, Boyd, heck even Pouliot could play there. Doesn't mean they'll all be just as good as one another.
If there's one thing you can easily give to Pyatt, it's his PK prowess. The kid is great there. Sure, Lappy wasn't too bad on the PK in the Carbo years but he wasn't as good, and that's why he isn't used there anymore. There are better guys.
