Looking at posts above, I see some that jus throws names out there with no idea how they would formats themselves on the ice. The PP is very simple, but it requires fundamental structures. A left shooting playmaker on the right side mostly working out with the right point or a right shooting playmaker on the left side mostly working out with the left point. Look at ANY successful PP. This is a HUGE problem for us. HUGE. We are forced to rely on Stepan and MDZ on the left side while we dont take full use of BR.

Can Nash be that player that along with BR can figure out how to move the puck??? Maybe, but it's not a given.

If not, I would actually consider getting Tim Connoly from TOR on waivers to fill this void. He could replace Halpern 5 on 5 and PP.

Too bad Connolly will be injured half the time.
