Pitkanen's ALWAYS had an elite skillset when healthy, and he finally seems to know how to use it (i.e. finally using that bomb of his every once in awhile).
I say keep them together. A true #1 pairing. Have we ever actually had that?
No, and we don't now honestly. Pitkanen's an okay two-way player but nothing special in his own end, and Faulk's waaaay too young for all this Doughty talk.
imho the biggest problem with our team was constant turnovers and contested entries into the Panthers' zone. We got 2 power play goals scored on us, but holy **** we looked bad at even strength. There were almost no simple tiki-taka passes. Just lame, easily intercepted attempts. We need crisp-passing PMDs throughout the lineup.
