Being a PPQB, skill isn't what matters. You have to have a high hockey IQ in the offensive zone, know where to move the puck at the right time, how to maneuver PK'ers, and you have to have a certain type of confidence. What I loved about Morrow when he was here for his call up last season is that he has an arrogance to be a really good PPQB. Letang always, and I mean ALWAYS, defers to Sid or Geno. He takes way too long to decide if he wants to shoot or not, and by time he thinks about it, his opportunity has passed.
Morrow, even at 18 years old, had a swagger on the point. He was going to shoot the puck, and he didn't give a **** who was on the ice with him.
