Spurgeon actually has been the only defenseman I've seen who will step up with the puck on the PP and get guys moving. He also is willing to shoot. But he does lose the puck occasionally.
I would have Suter-Gilbert and Brodin-Spurgeon as my defensive pairings on the PP...
I can't stand that we just have a guy sitting in front of the net doing nothing and another guy sitting off to the side.
The Wild seem to be stuck either moving the puck from the top of the umbrella to either half wall or from the half wall to the top or corner. So it's like we're down by two men. Other teams skate and force guys out of position. We just pass around and let them box us out.
I agree, that would be fantastic. Gilbert loves shooting from the point, so he'll complement Suter really well. And Spurgeon - Brodin is very intriguing, because both guys are like waterbugs out there, and they are not shy about ripping one on net.
But of course, Yeo will find a way to put Bouchard or Cullen in there, even though they both have no business playing the point anymore...
