Does anyone else think we are running poorly constructed pp units:

There is no creativity down low on either.

PP unit number 2:

Kane and Jokinen don't fit together on the same unit as both bring the same elements to a pp i.e. net/slot presence. Both a triggerman and not set up men and the problem is is that neither passes well enough to get each other the puck in the slot. We need to place one on each pp unit.

1st unit, there is no slot scorer, Little and Wheeler don't scare opposing teams as shooters and as a result they take away our point shots. Ladd is a good net presence but once again an unbalanced unit.

My solution:

Play Scheifele with Ladd and Jokinin:

Ladd can win board battles and puck possesion and get to the front of the net. Jokinin can take faceoffs and get to the slot and let Scheifele distribute from the half boards.

Reunite Kane with Wheeler and Little. Little plays on the goal line and Wheeler the half boards while Kane roams the slot.
