and he isn't going to be afraid to send Jackman (or another tough guy) out there to teach someone a lesson if they do something to one of our skill players.
The bolded is very important. If he can improve our PP, then this team could at the very least have a legit shot at the playoffs.

Honestly our PP was so bad under Sutter I cannot imagine that it can get any worse.
