Same as in 5 v 5. not a whole lot of thinking going on with dump, chase, cycle cycle open man shoot. or carry the puck in, find open man, open man shot, or if it isn't there cyclle cycle cylce. With the PP there is more time to think and I think that is where our pp gets lost.Every team runs the ame 3-4 looks, it is about processing the game quicker rather than reacting. It seems like when we get a pp, the game slows and we can't adjust from going 100 mph to 50 mph and reacting to what the pks are giving us. And that is a between the ears problem for our playmakers-the guys on the halfboards and the dman puck mover. now certainly, suter being injured hurts our pp terribly. we obviosly have point shots in weber and franson and net presence in hornquist. but it is along the boards where the great pp passes come from. this is where I think we need to have wilson developing.
That's exactly where I've said there's a problem the past few years. When we set up and try to use the open space our lack of true offensive talent is exposed...
