Just to expand on this notion, let's look at the top-5 teams in the NHL in terms of PP percentage:

VAN: H.Sedin-D.Sedin-Kesler-Ehrhoff. Sedin twins can pass the puck like no other forward pairing in the league. Kesler is 100 times better than any center on our team and also happens to win faceoffs with a high proficiency, something our centers did not do all season. Ehrhoff is one of the most underrated, and most consistent offensive D-men in the league. He also has more offensive skill than any D-man on our team.

SJS- Marleau-Thornton-Heatley-Couture-Boyle

ANA- Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry-Fowler-Visnovsky-Selanne. I'm not even going to comment on this group because it speaks for itself.

CHI- Toews is awesome at faceoffs, Keith is great on the point. CHI might be the anomaly in the group because their numbers exceed the amount of talent on their roster.

DET- Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Franzen-Lidstrom-Rafalski.

NYR- Gaborik (has sucked all season, whether he's injured or not, let's stop making apologies and accept it for what it is)-Dubi-Cally (injured for a long stretch)-??????-???????-???????. Bunch of question marks after that. Boyle? Prospal? Stepan? Zuccarello? Erik Christensen? Come on....

You know which assistant coach should be fired? Whoever somehow managed to let the Caps PP deteriorate to 16th.
