I think they need to split up the top players into two strong PP lines. Throw a grinder or two out there to inject some passion into the power play; guys that make a living working hard to hold the zone and make dirty goals. Just because it's 5-on-4 doesn't mean you'll get that perfect snipe every time.
I'll never buy splitting up the units for two very good reasons:

- there isn't enough talent for two units, so who gets the ****** unit? Crosby or Malkin?

- the Pens had very good PP units with Francis/Jagr and then Kovy/Jagr. Three guys who loved the half wall and were all lefties.

They need a PP QB and Letang isn't it. The lack of a true QB up high is killing the PP.
