I like the way the Marlies do PK, but there is an argument that you can get away with that style against less gifted offensive players, you don't pay a price for aggression. That said, I don't like the fact we play a hard forechecking game, in your face, keep the other team off balance 5 on 5, then turn into this passive team when we're on the PK. Ideally, I want three guys in the neutral zone not giving up an inch or the red line, we just collapse and set up a box.
