Something that annoyed me in the Ottawa game was the ordering that each unit came out on the ice. I don't know if this is a strategy of Gulutzan's or what, but waiting until the final 50 seconds to get your "good" unit out there seems counter-intuitive to me. Maybe his idea is to match up Benn/Loui/Ryder/Souray/Larsen against more tired PKers. It's awfully demoralizing to start out with the Robidas/Petersen group though. Sometimes it seems like bad starts to PPs can snowball into momentum-sapping killers that cause the next unit to press more than they would normally.
