Ill try Ryan at the point again, if it means getting Foster off the ice.
As you said, Getzlaf would rotate around and play the point a little bit but Pronger was the primary point man. Fowler plays more of the Niedermayer role, if we play four forwards on the PP we need someone pulling the trigger from the blueline and Getzlaf isn't that guy.
