Erat is typically a second line wing, but he's played like trash this year for the most part, as well.
What I dont' understand is why you have two players that are the closest thing to "hot" that we have-- Craig Smith and Gabby Bourque-- yet Trotz continues to put Fisher, Kostitsyn, Erat on the first PP unit, despite the fact that it's been abysmal all season.
I've never seen another coach stress a "defensively responsible" power play unit.
It's not all Trotz but he is at fault.
And I agree, why in the world our young scorers aren't seeing more pp time is mind boggling.
