I would guess you follow the Fishsticks far closer than me. Any reason why they weren't using a player with goal scoring ability at all on the PP in the playoffs (particularly when Fleury was craptacular in net)? Or do they follow the Canucks model of loading up on one "super PP unit" with no/little time for the 2nd unit?
Not really, I follow Grabner as much as I can but don't follow the NYI more than any other team. Could be chemistry, coaches preference, or maybe even that Grabner pks a fair bit and so is saved for that where his speed is more useful than on a half-wall power play. Besides, even I'll admit he is a primarily shoot-first player in the Phil Kessel mode, so probably isn't the best option on a PP centred around Tavares ...
