Not getting the bang for buck from our Big 3 on the score sheet. Plain & simple. There are no excuses here. Guys are getting paid extremely well to score and are not putting up acceptable numbers. YET. I readily add.

Nash has played well, Gaborik so-so and Richards has been mediocre so far IMO. But we should be getting close to the competitive point production in the league as opposed to the salary they get. Otherwise these investments are not viable.

0 PP goals for these 3 star players, with over 2,5 hours of combined PP time and during 39 different Power play opportunities, including countless 5 on 3s, is simply not acceptable. It is a disaster! Anyone disagreeing here is simply delusional.
I agree, but unfortunately, as long as John Tortorella is the coach of this team, we are not going to be adjusting anything. No hiring powerplay specialists, no smart line combos, basically nothing productive. We either go out and grind out a win, or we go out and grind it out in a loss. There is no middle ground here, it's either really good or really bad. If we are not >21st on the powerplay, we won't get over the hump. I hate having a stubborn coach like him sometimes, funny thing is, he came into this league as a pure Powerplay specialist.
