We don't have that guy who can reguarly gain the zone and set things up. Sullivan was that for us last year. The PP ran through Geno last year, but Sullivan was a huge part of our success. He was a calming presence at the point. We don't have that now and it's showing.
Letang can gain the zone if the PP scheme were to be changed where he could carry it in deep himself. What Letang can't do is play the top point and distribute the puck.
