Why? We have no speed to our passes. Everything we do in the offensive zone is deliberate. I can count the number of plays this year on the power play in which we were able to catch the defense out of position with our passing on one hand.
So... our problem on the power play is not a booming shot. It is the scheme and execution.
Timmonen doesn't need a booming shot to do what he does so well. Neither does
, Bogosian or other PP Qbs.
I'd absolutely love to have Erik Karlsson QB our PP! But since he's the only player on the Senator squad that Murray won't ship, that's not happening.
