Brown and Kopitar play so well together, would love to see what they could do on the PP right now. And Carter just isn't producing at all.
why the top unit hasn't had net presence for 30 games is anyones guess. They dont produce any chances, the 2nd unit produces way more chances, because Brown and Stoll both like to go to the front of the net and cause havoc. The top unit is just a joke from top to bottom.
First problem being Carter doesnt seem to have a purpose out there. Second problem is Richards and Kopitar both like to play the same position, so just get in each others way more than anything. third problem is that Doughty plays top point while Martinez plays left point, so they cant even 1 time passes to each other. That is easily the most baffling aspect of it, the fact that your 2 point men are on the wrong side to shoot so everytime the puck comes to Martinez in space due to all the pk being drawn over to Kopitar, he has to take a touch before doing anything. Just swap him and Doughty and suddenly Doughty has acres of space to 1 time passes.
It really is pathetic that the best our pp has been in recent years was when the gameplan was feed Stoll for 1 timers over and over again
