The improved PP can be traced back to Ehrhoff. The twins were ineffective before he arrived with the man advantage. Then in '09-10 the 2nd unit quarterbacked by Ehrhoff outscored the Sedin unit. This past year Ehrhoff took the 1st unit to #1 in the NHL and the 2nd unit led by Bieksa was as futile as the league has ever seen.

If Ehrhoff isn't re-signed look for the PP to fall out of the top 10 IMO.
Exactly this. I believe he is a huge part of the PP...and what was the one of the things that allowed Vancouver to be great this year? A great PP.

The PP will get worse and now it is absolutely imperative to improve the team at even strength...which is going to be very, very difficult.
