I'm going to pull this from the other thread because I think it's worth a PGDT discussion:

Babcock needs to get this "right-handed point man" crap out of his head. Is it nice to have? Absolutely. Is is necessary? Absolutely not. Brunner would be much better served playing the half-boards with Z and Franzen, with Ericsson and Kronwall on the points.

Second unit should be Tatar/Filppula, Datsyuk, and Cleary/Abdelkader/Andersson for a net-front/puck retrieval guy, with Smith and Kindl (or White if/when he comes back) on the back-end.

And they have GOT GOT GOT to tighten up on those 5-on-3 PPs. I mean ****, guys, how hard is it to play a box with one man at the net (also known as a pentagram) and get that puck moving around? Wear the PKers down with quick puck movement, and take some shots. It's not rocket surgery.

(Also, perhaps the GDTs should be locked after the game and the discussions permanently moved into the PGDTs? Just a thought...)
