Your fix for the PP

Its obvious that we've been struggling on special teams, but I cant recall watching a team be so futile when up a man.

Personally, I would:

-Put Voracek on the bench, hes not a threat to shoot so teams can pressure G even more and mishandles the puck more often than not

-Put another Dmen out there, someone who can really bomb it, I know Foster doenst usually play, but he already had one deflected in this year. At least a guy who the other teams have to respect somewhat because honestly, Kimmo is almost like a forward out there. He has a good shot, but he moves the puck around well up top and has proven to be a great set up man. He makes mistakes, but hes our best option on d

-Keep Giroux, obviously

-Keep simmonds, he's done nothing wrong

-Add dynamic player. As much as I like Knuble, he doesnt offer much besides standing in front of the goalie and putting in rebounds. What we need is a guy who can not only do that, but move the puck around down low and up high as well as set up other guys or possibly bury if he gets set up. Right now I would think Couts could do that job the best, but there are other candidates as well.

So you would have

Kimmo (QB)
D-men with bomb (Foster, someone else, threat to shoot, teams have to respect that and **** away from G)
-G (working half boards well, set up down guys down low/cross ice, also a threat to shoot
-Simmonds (working in front of the net, gets ugly goals)
-Dynamic player (guy who can work in front of the net, but also move it behind/around, someone who is a threat from multiple spots)
