we had zuk. perfect kinda creative passer for the pp. good with the puck and patient. a guy who has shown great ability in europe playing with the man advantage. he wasnt used properly. bad coaching.

we had beaver. good shot. good passer. smart. he was mishandled and misused. his 5 on 5 play was awful ill grant you that, but hes a guy who should be on every pp. he wasnt. bad coaching.

nash. he underperformed on the pp. you just gotta get him involved. bad coaching.

kreider. shoulda played more. he didnt. nuff said. bad coaching.

too much boyle. cally. pyatt on the pp for my liking. bad coaching.

too much del zotto. hes clueless mostly with the puck on the pp and his shot is abysmal. bad coaching.

while we dont/didnt have a true pp qb, we had guys who could have gotten the job done.

its coaching i tell ya....
That's some serious revisionist history. Richards was absolutely awful on the PP. He shouldn't have been on either unit for most of the season let alone on "every PP." DZ is clueless and his shot is abysmal but Richards has a good shot and is a smart, good passer? They were both awful on the points - no idea what to do, broadcast every single move to the other team before they made it, absolute wastes of point spots most of the year.
