The Blues breakout is pretty terrible on the PP. It takes them forever to regroup, and even when they have the puck movement is slow, and the options they give the puck-carrier are poor. When the PK sends a forechecker in deep, that's not the time to half-ass it back while the puck carrier looks to hide. Bust back to give the man a couple of quick options and turn that into a 4 on 3 the other way. Even if it doesn't develop into an odd man rush, there's going to be a lot more room to gain the zone with one of the PKers out of the play. There is zero urgency in the Blues PP breakout, and their opponents abuse it regularly.
