Here's a list of pts / 60min at 5v4. Please note there is no way to filter by minutes of 5v4 time and some players slip into the list based on chance and small sample size. I'm trusting you guys to filter out the Parks, and Michaleks. It is pretty easy to see who should be on the #1PP aside from the 2nd defender. God no Crosby on point.

whether the guy at the net gets good stats or not, someone needs to be there in front of the net. I don't see us putting the 8.7 million dollar a year Crosby in the way of slapshots and crosschecks every powerplay.
