That's what you see happening here.
On the PP, Richards skating the puck up the middle, with no support, only to be surrounded by all 4 PK'ers DOES NOT WORK.
Not covering Ovechkin in the slot has cost them three times does not work. Yet there he was yesterday, free in the slot with all the time and space in the world.
The retarded backhand pass from the corner to the slot. Not only does it not work, but it's always causing a turnover, leading to an odd man rush more often then not.
Shooting the puck at Holtby when there's a clear line of sight for him. Does NOT work either.
Shooting the puck at his pads for a rebound would work. Except there's a slight problem with that. You can't put rebounds in if you're behind the ******* net. But our forwards continue to stay there, even when the puck is back at the point.
Insanity, I tell you.
Reading my mind?

There is absolutely no reason NOT to let Kreider and Hagelin see PP time when you're PP is 0-4, you're trailing in a game and a PP is 2 minutes long anyhow, which is plenty of time to let more than one unit see some ice. My post actually CREDITS the talent of all four of our PP staples (Richards, Gabby, Cally, DZ) if you read it, but that doesn't mean a kid like Kreider, who obviously has offensive upside couldn't give us a new look out there, once in a while, when we're struggling and we need a goal. No need for the smug, dismissive attitude.
Bingo. No one said they're the magic solution. It doesn't hurt to TRY when the PP is this bad though. Doing the same thing over and over, to the same result... what's that called? Insanity?
