Unless Braun is coming up and going to be a a PP specialist and our PP numbers GREATLY improve. I doubt it though.
No please, no more PP "specialists." I am SICK and TIRED of the Sharks trying to go with 7 dmen, like in the WCF when Demers was relegated to PP time only. Guys like "the big 3" need less ice time, and when you go 11 forwards, Thornton and/or Marleau double-shift and are less effective.

Especially in the playoffs, 7 dmen has been an epic fail for the Sharks, going back (As far as I can remember) to 00-01 WCQF against STL [not the 8 seed Sharks, but the season after] when D Sutter went with 7 dmen to get in a PP specialist (at the time, Jeff Jillson).
