As mentioned, the lockout could actually be a pretty good thing for Babcock. The players were tuning him out, and he admitted it. Compared it to the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons.

In terms of the PP, we actually did see some new things, if my memory serves me correctly. They went with three guys up high, one in the middle and a net presence for awhile last season. It worked for a bit, but didn't seem to last.

I'd actually like to see them get away from the net presence a little more and maybe get that guy to drift into the slot. It's easier said than done, but some cross-crease stuff would be a huge improvement. Seems to be like the team was too reliant on just sending the puck back to the blue line, assuming Nick would get it through. Stopped working awhile back.
