Did you happen to see the difference between the last Canucks PP when players were moving with the puck and without the puck and our sad 4 power plays when our guys are simply passing the puck to virtually stationary players?

The point is not the problem. Being static on the point is. That is a coaching problem, not an execution problem. The sooner Molson figures that out, the better.

But.........many many beers were sold tonight to drown the pain.
It's clearly a coaching/tactical issue. It's beyond obvious.

All the stuff you pointed as well as them repeatedly trying to force the puck to the point when there isn't an option there.

If they had a threat of a low play once in a while ,they could work it low to high and the point would actually be open once in a while. All teams are doing is playing a tight gap on the point men since it's so obvious what they are trying to do and there isn't a threat of a low play.

it's abysmal coaching.
