You need one of your point men to be right handed as a shot threat. Stepan is right handed. Relegate Richards to the second unit or have him distribute the puck from the half wall.

This has been an ongoing issue with the team's powerplay. The units don't actually make sense. They haven't for years. These would be units that make sense:

Callahan-Richards-Nash
Stepan-Del Zotto

Clowe-Brassard-Zuccarello
Girardi-Moore

Instead, we're going to keep getting

Callahan-Stepan-Nash
Girardi-Richards

Clowe-Brassard-Zuccarello
Random D
I'd prefer not to have a forward on the point at all. I think between Moore, Stralman and McDonagh, we could easily put one of them on the point with Del Zotto as a shooter. The shooter doesn't necessarily have to be a righty either. It's nice to have that off-wing shot, but it's not a necessity.
