Why wouldn't you use Smyth on the PP though? Who do you guys have that would be better at standing in front of the net while Chara is teeing it up? Or is this another situation where you'll be so kind as to remind us were a bottom feeder? Because in this conversation it's irrelevant. Our PP was 3rd in the league with an 18 yr old rookie as the focal point and a career AHLer (Potter) as the main trigger man. So maybe Smyth factored into the success of the PP just a little. Chara and the almighty Seguin had your team operating middle of the pack (15th to be exact). Maybe an extra PP goal or two has the Boston faithful cheering their team onto the second round last year instead of hurling racial slurs at Joel Ward.
