All is well in the world of Pie.
This obsession with having a sexy PP is bordering on fanatical. Guys, how many 0fers on the PP (not 2nite obviously) combined with W's will it take before folks realize a good PP not essential to winning hockey, ESPECIALLY in the playoffs, which is what it's all about.
I'm going to pound these mantras the rest of the season until folks finally "get" it....
PP for show, PK for dough.
A great PP gets you the presidents trophy, a great PK gets you the cup.
It's nice to have a good PP, it is essential to have a good PK.
PP is icing, PK is the cake.
Oh, and of course...DO NOT BOO OUR PP!
Tell me which of these two teams you would rather have heading into the playoffs:
Team A: 220 even strength goals, 89% PK, 10% PP
Team B: 220 even strength goals, 89% PK, 20% PP
You act like playing well 5-on-5 and having a productive PP are mutually exclusive, and that is simply not the case. Nobody is saying that the Bruins are a bad team, and they might even win a Cup as is, but I would feel much better about their chances in round 1 of the playoffs if they were "team B" as opposed to "team A." It is simply asinine to believe that they would not be a better team with a more productive powerplay.
