He doesn't **** around. The puck is literally off his stick in a heartbeat. He makes decisions before he gets the puck, unlike Captain Clutch.
What u described is what i have claimed the team has missed for years now. Good power plays are direct The NHL PK is too good to think you will simply out pass them from a flat setup.

Having a guy who uses his shot is key. When you shoot, the PK must react, you have more players in position to retrieve rebounds or pucks of boards. And upon retrieval the PK is running around, transferring coverage, running back to assignments. That is when you get over commitment, and much better lanes open up. Suddenly a fake one timer has guys leaping for blocks

Think to the caps old power play when it was awesome. All i remember is shot after shot coming from Ovie, and me squeezing my couch in tension. Our guys were sliding all over to get blocks and we would end up out of position.

The shot forces movement from the PP too. Something we also desperately need.
