I did. Parts of the Leafs PK last season. I remember the NYE game, whenever they took a penalty in the 2nd, I called every goal on the PP. Every time a Leafs player was in the box, the puck went in, it seemed. Of course, after that game they went on a run where they didn't give up a PP goal for the whole month of January.
Watching the Hawks-Canucks game, the Hawks PK is miles ahead of where the Jets' is. Aggressive on the puck carrier, but not so much to give up their shape, and defencemen who clear the front of the net.
Pavelec gets criticized for the goals he gives up, but on the PK, a lot of the goals are deflections, which the goalie traditionally has trouble with.
