The thing, (well, one of the things), that makes the Sharks #1PP so effective is that they just keep rotating. Nobody's attached to the points. Generally, Marleau-Boyle-Pavelski rotate on the points, but I've seen Couture up there, I've seen Thornton up there, I've seen Marleau and Pavelski lower in the zone. It's just so fluid and unpredictable. Take that system, add players who can do it effectively, and then add in the amount of pure passing and shooting skills and vision between the 5 guys. They're nearly flawless on the PP.

Something to note is, when the 4-3 came in OT yesterday, it was Couture with Marleau/Thornton/Boyle instead of Pavelski. I think the coaches see Couture as a better offensive player than Pavelski (as they should) and that's why they leave him out to dry all the time, playing with scrubs.
