The players can be their own nightmare. They overpass instead of simply shooting. I also think we could use a bit of a better front net presence but that's being too nitpicky.
The addition of guys actually moving is nice too. In yesterday's game against the Panthers Crosby started a powerplay on the right half wall, moved behind the net, then moved to the left half wall before finally ending up on the top of the umbrella where he ripped a one-timer that sadly went wide.
Crosby literally covered the entire breadth of the offensive zone in that one powerplay. It throws teams too because they can't overplay one particular play or guy.
