I think they should be putting Jagr, Roy and Whitney up front and having Jagr double shift with the second unit.
The powerplay is a problem, and you are definitely right about Morrow. I suspect that Morrow as the captain is being given more responsibility because he is the captain, which is a failure of leadership by whoever is designing the powerplay.

I don't understand why Eriksson isn't on the first unit. Shouldn't a shooter (Ryder or Eriksson), be paired with a good passer (Jagr or Whitney)? I know both Jagr and Whitney know where the net is, but it seems like stacking the two best playmakers while giving the scraps to the most consistent scorer and last year's top scorer makes no sense.

This is a good point too, and since Whitney has played the point elsewhere IIRC, having them switch after the faceoff makes much more sense.
