I still think our PP lacks creativity. All the action is on the point guys. Last year, MaxPac scored many goals when he was on the left side of the goalie. We dont see those cross-ice pass from the D to the guy on the face-off circle for a one-timer anymore.
And you just hit the nail on the head. This team has no real playmakers, atleast none that have matured to the point of running an NHL powerplay. Our #1 playmaker is markov. Pleks is a fantastic 2 way forward but is not a great playmaker. Desharnais may develop into one, but so far his passes lack precision. Eller will grow into this role, I think, but he's still years away in that regard.
