Power play

Why does everyone seem to skirt the real issue of the power play. Since the middle of last year we basically had the same guys on the power play with the same result; BAD. Even strength we are holding our own but the games are mostly won or lost by the special teams nowadays. Yesterday 5 on 3 we do not get a shot on net what is wrong with this picture. Maybe MacTavish should send out some of his bottom players and let the big guys sit. Even for a whole game; what could it hurt you are not winning anyways and maybe it would send a message to these so called top players. You learn by experimenting not by doing the same thing over and over again. Maybe if you gave some of the other players more responsibilty it would change this team around. After the dismal performance of the 5 on 3 what do the Oilers do in the last minute with the man advantage, they put the same players out with the same results. You can not blame the fans for booing.
