I would.
Yes, which is why we put Pronger at the top and Timonen is who the puck works through. Prior to that, it was Richards over there (who also has a good one-timer). However, the point isn't that Pronger's shot isn't good (he has one of the better shots in the league from the point), it's that the supposed problem with Timonen's shot is inherent to the position he is playing on the ice... and no matter who you put there (unless they're a righty shot) isn't going to be able to crank 'em up.
