I think that's exactly right, and it's working very well. The Canucks have the downlow play, and either of the points as threats. Teams can probably cover two pretty well, but they have to cheat off the third to do that.

Certainly not a perfect powerplay, and Garrison doesn't lead a powerplay like Ehrhoff could, but I think that Garrison looks better than any option we had last year. Also, Kesler isn't even in and the powerplay is having that success.
