The Power Play

Now that we have a couple of snipers on the team in Gabby/Nash, and PP specialist/all-around beast John Mitchell signed for the big bucks in Denver, how would you put together the PP units? (assume the "center" is the front-of-the-net presence)

PP1:

Hagelin - Callahan - Nash

Girardi - Richards

I like this because you get your sniper out on the ice, Cally loves his garbage goals, Hags is awesome at puck-retrieval, Richie can QB, and Girardi has a bomb from the point that he has to use more often. Lefties are on the right, righties on the left so everyone can make that move to the center of the ice; with the exception of Hagelin because I think this group will tend to dump-and-chase and they need his speed.

PP2:

Stepan - Kreider - Gaborik

Stralman - Del Zotto

This line is based more around creativity up front. I'd keep DZ at the point as the QB and Stepan on the left half boards; both guys are creative passers. Stralman has shown willingness to take the shot from the point. Kreider and Gabby should have more freedom to move around the slot and the right circle to get in position to get a shot away. If this combination could get it through their heads that you have to move around and find the open ice, they could make things happen out there.
