the pp woes are simple. its not the personel either. we have the horses. its 3 things.
1. we have no threat from the top. no one has a canon. without that threat, teams will cheat and then we default to the same ole "pass it around the perimeter team until we turn it over" pp.
2. guys that really dont get it. gaby continues to go behind the net or on the wrong wall where his shot is neutralized. in addition, no one seems to understand that one timers off cross ice feeds or set plays on the pp actually work.
3. when you cant bring the puck up ice and settle it down in the o zone, you are always gonna be in an unsettled situation where the play is dectated by the opposing pk pressure and that is usually forcing pucks to the wall where the pk can waste time and tire out the pp unit.
we just never seem to apply any sustained pressure.
as i said before, this pp fail will kill this team. we arent able to do much 5 on 5 so without the pp scoring, we lose. period.
