FWIW I don't think personnel has anything at all to do with this.
There's just no reason to believe that the Bruins are one of the first teams in history to find a way to score near tops in the league at even strength over the course of 3-4 years and be the worst, or close to the worst, PP over that span of time. They haven't stumbled upon the perfect 5-on-5 talent level that somehow isn't good enough when up a man. As much as I love the guy and want him here, this comes back to the head coach. CJ needs to do something here, whether it's appoint a new PP coach, take or give up the reigns himself, whatever. There is way too much talent on this roster for such a terrible power play.
I think people looking to solve this problem through trade are simply off the mark. Whoever is running this thing is screwing this up, and one or two additions isn't going to change that. It's been years now.
