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!
Interesting idea. Unfortunately I'm too young to have seen Shutt play and only caught the very trailing end of Lafleur. Definitely thinking outside the box though, unless I'm mistaken I don't recall ever seeing that on the PP. He's certainly shifty and protects the puck well. He'd be a hell of a pest in front of the net too . Bowman really did that? wow. Crazy indeed. Who was the d-man he used like that?
