A quick, sneaky wrist shot sometimes is a better option than a big slap shot too. If you look at PK's goals from the point this year they were short little half wind ups, quick release and more importantly, they were on the net.
I brought this up on another thread and would like some feedback.
Regarding the PP, I'm thinking PK would be great playing a wing position. Better on the boards than most forwards, arguably the best skater to create space, good passer and improving, a deadly wrister and snap shot, and hard to move from the crease.
Markov, Diaz on the point, Pleks, PK and Bourque. Switch out Eller and BGally.
I have to admit that playing D up in the PP has been gold to me since watching games where Scotty Bowman did it with Lafleur and Shutt on the bench. Crazy huh!
