I can't believe how many big slappers he rifled wide. Its gotta be on net, even if it isn't that hard maybe we get a rebound you never know. I don't think he really deserves to start every PP. I think Liles is a better QB, heck Liles Kostka would suit me just fine.
The problem that Carlyle has with his powerplay, is that they practice in 5 man units.
Kostka (Liles on 5 on 3s) -Phaneuf / Kessel-Bozak-JvR
Liles - Franson / Kulemin - Grabo - Kadri
He's hesitant to start mixing and matching because of the PP time they've spent practicing.
The Kessel line has looked OK on the powerplay (scored last night, had chances), but the Liles-Franson partnership looks SO MUCH better on the point than Phaneuf and Kostka.
Randy has to be willing to switch it up a little bit. My guess is we may see lots of chopping and changing on the PP if it struggles during the Boston game.
1 - Liles back up on the first unit.
2 - Hamilton on the PP for a net presence
