not that Gonchar would have necessarily helped, but we also gave up some backbreaking shorties in the playoffs. We were certainly not the 3rd best powerplay in the playoffs no matter what the percentage says. Oh, and we lost Sullivan.

Also, I think the powerplay could be a completely overwhelming strength of this team if we had a good point shot on the blueline. As it stands, we'll probably end up putting Sid or Geno on the point. Granted, bringing in a QB puts one of Kunitz, Neal or Letang on the 2nd unit. I don't know. I would kill for one of Sid or Geno to be right handed.
