The way I see it, when Zubov was playing he was pretty much always the best offensive player on the ice for his team. He was able to craft the PP to suit the skill sets of four other, lesser players than he during his playing days. It's not crazy to think he could help this team out. His words hold enough weight that maybe he could even get the rest of the coaching staff to ice the best #1 PP unit. Rolling forward lines when this team has as little firepower as it does is just dumb.
