(I wouldn't mind seeing Olver on the PK over McLeod, guys that can actually anticipate and react to the other teams players.)
The problem with that is we'd be using our best players for the PK and at our current rate that means they'll get half of their TOI per game on the PK. We can't score 5 on 5 if they're playing 4 on 5 all the time.
That is a great plan for a more disciplined team, but not one such as ours imo.
Meanwhile, Duchy should be the guy that attacks after a PK, when the other team's best players are tired. Stastny, O'Reilly, Landeskog & ???!!! should be the top lines, with our third consisting of whomever.
Unfortunately 1/2 of those players aren't playing and 1/4 of them don't exist outside of being a figment of my imagination.
