He has certainly turned around the power play, having a capable right handed player out there has increased the options. Their breakout last game was hideous though, I mean a defencemen going straight up the ice, with one forward on the blueline and 3 of them trailing him?? Who's genius idea was this
Saying this is an average team without him is a little silly though. He hasn't been good at all 5 on 5 and it isn't like this team is dominating with him back. Whoever goes on his line suddenly becomes useless, whereas they look good next to a rookie in Schroeder. Certain people won't admit it, but the real leader of this team is Henrik. Yeah sucks that he doesn't shoot enough, but the team has somehow continued winning with both Daniel and Kesler out for extended stretches.
If this team is gonna do any damage though it will be on the back of goaltending and the defence (both scoring and defending). We simply don't have any elite talent upfront outside the twins
