if vlasic had any offensive skill he would be on one of the 2 power play units. but he is being taken off the power play units in favor of a rookie braun and a sophmore demers.
Yea while I get where your coming from, you do have to take into consideration that suter had shea weber as a linemate who is an elite offensive dman (and having puck hog boyle as a linemate wouldn't help him), and when you look at suters stats compared to say, the year that vlasic played with blake the most his numbers are pretty comparable to suters. That and there is no denying that demers or braun have more offensive upside than vlasic so of course they are gonna get the crack at powerplay time.
