Stralman should not be on the powerplay unit. He's not quick enough with his decisions. His shots are not precise enough either.

McD would be an obvious choice but since he's been coached by Torts he's become much more reluctant to shoot in any situation. He used to have an offensive side to him when he first came up. It's no where to be found anymore.

Same with Moore. When he first came here he was shooting the puck much more. Now he is hesitant and by the time he wants to take a shot it'll be blocked.

This system forces our defenders to think defense first. That causes hesitations when they do get a chance to shoot and severely limits their opportunities when they do make up their mind to do something.

Girardi has a hard shot, thing is he's not too good with stick handling, making decisions quickly, or keeping the puck in. Therefore, he's constantly dumping the puck in, or by the time he controls the puck well enough to shoot/decides to shoot, the only lane he has open is to shoot wide and hope for a crazy deflection.

Staal has similar capabilities on the powerplay to Girardi.

Del Zotto is just stupid on the powerplay. He'll hesitate to shoot, then shoot it into the defenseman for the **** of it. He uses minimal common sense.

It would be more beneficial to roll out with 5 forwards, at this point.
