Hockey is such a team sport that it's generally difficult for a star player to dominate one contest, let alone over 30. You need good teammates with you to do well. It's unrealistic to think that one of those guys could just be a one man show on the Wolves' PP when you factor in who they're out there with.
Kane, Towes, Hossa, Sharp, Keith, Seabrook, Leddy, etc. — sounds like you could put together an amazing PP, right? Wrong, they were Bottom 5 last year. A good system and coaching matters so much more. Unless we're claiming that after years of being great PP players, Kane, Toews, and Hossa suddenly forgot how to put up points on a man advantage. Can't neglect to mention the lack of Campbell who could really QB a PP.
Wolves don't have the coaching, nor the D to run a PP. As it stands, keeping everything the same, you could put up the best forwards in the AHL on the Wolves PP and I have little doubt that it would continue to be mediocre.
