our lack of a shot from the point continues to hurt us. mdz is fine with another guy who can blast away, but as our lone dman on the pp. not so much.

plus, like i said, his ability to recover and get back with speed scares me. hes just such a lumbering skater.

just think stralman makes more sense.

What do you know, he hit the nail right on the head.

Stralman never was given the same sort of flexibility and opportunities Del Zotto has. I suspect that their abilities on the power play are not that far apart. No one is concerned about a Del Zotto shot so they cheat on Richards. Provide some firepower from the opposite point and the ice will open.
