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.
You can truly see this when watching them play. Too much standing around, not enough screening of the goalie with consistency, and the guys on D seem unable to get their shots through. No 'true' PP QB too - as Connauton is more of a trigger man - who has the puck skills, confidence, vision, skating and instincts to really run it from the point. Good post above btw.
