If Mullen was able to use the players properly this year he would. Apparently it's not working.... who or what do you think is to blame, Jester?

I remember a thread I started WAY back about how horrible the PP has been.... and it's STILL ****. Hmmmm, wonder why?
I think their personnel is messed up... and they need to figure that out. I think Carle-Meszaros has been completely ineffective as a tandem along the top, and we need to do away with that. I don't think Giroux and Briere can be on the same PP unit...

But here's the problem... Mullen has coached this team's PP for a number of years now, and they've been EXTREMELY successful. Why are you assuming he's suddenly ineffective as a coach?

Most importantly, I think Richards is right that the PP lacks some identity and they need to get back to sets of 5 players like in previous years. Especially since the two PPs need to operate quite differently dependent on who the point men are.

I hate the word 'fine' it's complacent. They are all complacent out there... it's disgusting.
That's actually not true at all, they've had a couple of runs where they've been on fire.
