Personally, I'm not a big fan of that style of penalty killing.

With Price back there, it probably works quite well, as he's stellar, but otherwise you're often giving up free uncontested shots.
They overload and try to out man opponent when the puck is along the boards and collapse when the puck is high and try to block. Not sure why they thought it was a good idea to change last season's stellar PK but so far every PP has looked great against it.

Outside of adding Prust and Markov being added, I don't think there needed to be change in the skaters and style used.

2011/2012:
Plekanec/Gionta/Eller/Moen
Gorges - Subban

I'd like to see for 2012/2013:
1st unit
Plekanec - Prust
Gorges - Subban

2nd unit
Eller - Moen
Markov - Emelin

Subs = Gionta/Bouillon/Armstrong/White
