Wilson just hasn't been disciplined enough to earn PP time. Far as Legwand, he's not that good of a puck handler for entering the zone. We really don't have that guy right now. Maybe some of the younger guys can step up into that role, but PK was one of the best at that and we do miss it.
I've heard the we don't change anything stuff for years, but reality is we changed the PP last year several times, some subtle and some not so subtle. The PP and 5x5 strategies change all the time based on players and opposing teams. Zone entering schemes, setup schemes, breakout schemes all changed last year.
Look, I don't disagree that this is a big weakness of the team, but at this point it's just gotten into everyone's head. Maybe with the coaching change and some new players we may see a different take on it this year. As I said we need to simplify the playbook and build on the successes.
