Like the Hawks PK was any good with the current guys. Not throwing him out on the dismal PP blows my mind.

quote from the article above,
Of course, there was some curious handling of Stals as well. With both special teams struggling so much, could it have hurt to give him a look on either or both? You'd have to believe that speed would keep some point-men on opposing power plays on their heels, even if Stals wasn't always perfectly positioned. When the power play was screaming for more dump ins and retrieval, Stalberg was probably the best the Hawks had at it. But this is a familiar complaint
The use of Stalberg comes down to the riff between Bowman and Q IMO.
