Del Zotto was great in his first year at commanding the play, stretching out the box and setting up players (Kotalik in particular) for one-timers. Where did that go? Why did we abandon that idea in favor of Richards and a PP strategy that simply has not worked for two years now?

Hand the PP to Moore and Del Zotto. Stepan and Nash on the half-walls, and Cally in front of the net. I'd be absolutely shocked if we didn't see a noted improvement almost right away. All five of those players have skill and proven chemistry. Then switch it up and let Brassard run the second unit from the half-wall.
All of that is kind of my point. If Tortorella isn't going to change up the powerplay that isn't working, Sather needs to step in and bring in a powerplay coach who will and instruct Tortorella to let the new assistant run that aspect. Sather is the boss.
