I think that ideally, you would have invested more heavily in your penalty killers. Having an elite penalty kill would allow your team to throw their weight around with reckless abandon - the Broad Street Bullies could play the way they did because of their elite PK. That said, I like this set up a lot better and's the best you can do with your personnel. Seems pretty average overall.

I don't like Pitre and Stanfield together on the PP at all - Both are big time shooters, but who is going to set them up and QB the thing?

Sid Smith and Rick Martin both seem to be best close to the net, so whoever doesn't have that role (it seems like Martin) will have a hit to his production, but I don't think it's that big a deal.
