If we put Pronger, Mes and Richards in the umbrella together then we would have 3 legit slap shots for teams to cover, then you put Hartnell in front and Carter in the slot for rebounds. Then the 2nd unit could have Timonen and Carle basically just as puck movers (which is their strength) and alot of down low cycle play from Briere, Leino and Giroux (which all 3 are very good at).
Timonen has a respectable shot, he just plays the left point and that neutralizes his shot considerably (he can't face up for a one-timer there like Pronger does). This is one of the reasons everyone always stresses out about all our lefty D.
Pronger, Mes, and Richards are all left handed as well... so it's only going to be the guys on the right side of the ice that will be in a position to deliver the one-timer in that setup.
