I hate how they make good plays to get into the zone, stop, and then wait for their stupidly predictable power play to setup.
I'm always a fan of attacking on the rush with the man advantage. If you can carry the puck over the line, attack the net and bring the extra man down from the point.
What's the point of having a powerplay that sets up the same exacty way every time with the same exact players and make the same exact passes and take the same exact shots.
This is where we miss Roy. He was great at setting up along the goal line and attacking the center ice before feeding Vanek in the slot, Stafford at the post, or just shooting it by himself.
The powerplay needs to focus on working down low, I'd like to see some more behind the net setups.
What the point of the man advantage if you just pass the puck around the blue line and take one timers? You can do that just fine five on five. It's a complete waste of a power play, and you aren't going to beat NHL goaltenders on one timers from the tops of the circles without insane luck or Alexander Ovechkin.
