A big reason why we struggle so much on our PP is the enemy pk can cheat by collapsing into the middle because there is no significant scoring threat from the points. Thus limiting us to the perimeter.
A guy like Shea Weber would completely change how our PP would look. Not saying that is who this team should acquire, but they need to find a booming shot either in their second or third pairing. Erixon might be that guy but I am not sure.
Another PPQB(unless he has a Nasty shot)just complicates things. Then you have ANOTHER dude who wants to hold onto the puck and pass for a set up. We need a guy whose first instinct is to shoot when a lane opens. Its a big reason I HATE seeing Del Zotto and Richards paired together on the points. They both have the same instincts.
Good points. A guy like Ryan Whitney would do us good but he is a left hand shot, still has a cannon tho. Or even Joe Corvo can work here, even tho the defense might suffer a bit our offense should increase if we do get a guy that can blast it on the PP. I'm willing to risk it tho since we have Hank to bail us out, we have a great defense but we are missing that key point man for the PP.
