Pronger being out had a big impact, as it was decent with him. Losing Pronger meant more Carle, and Carle is terrible on the PP. I think the expanded role of Giroux hurt the PP because we had too many cooks in the kitchen a bit too much. Richards PP goals fell from 13 to 5, which was at least partially a byproduct of his wrist injury you would assume, and Briere just hasn't been as effective as desired for a couple years now.
