Complaining about Legwand being on the PP is laughable. Watch Fisher and his lack of puck control and tell me he should be out there ahead of Legwand. Fisher and Hornqvist on a PP together? Talk about a train wreck. Two guys that handle the puck like a grenade.

Wilson with Legwand and Erat on the wings.
Smith with Fisher and SK on the wings.
Spaling with Hornqvist and Bourque on the wings.
4th line I don't really care who's out there.

Those three lines should be able to get it done in some fashion or another. The third line worked great in the playoffs yet we haven't seen it this year at all. Go figure. Go with something that doesn't work as opposed to something that does.

Find a line that works and stick with it. Great teams are great because they build up chemistry with their players. We shuffle to dang much guys never get comfortable with one another. It shouldn't matter but it does. Why do you think Weber and Suter were so good as a pairing, because they played together for years. That's how it works. Find combos that work and stick with them. Is it that hard?

Is it that hard to find combos that work on the PP too? It's laughable.
