Just not working as well this year, so it would probably be good to change it up before the playoffs.
I think the forwards were more aggressive in the last couple of years. They forced the quarterbacks to make a really good play in order to get things set up. It kept the opposition unsettled. Actually, the sens PK reminds of the habs last year.

This year, they are more aggressive on teams that dump the puck in with their overload, but it does not lead to a clear often enough. Once the opposition is set up, the forwards look too passive.

There's also Hal Gill, I thought he was a very good PK player 5 on 4 and especially 5 on 3.
