I'm not sure if the numbers back this up but from what I remember the 1st pp unit was absolutely deadly and I would put it up against any other unit in the league. However, the 2nd unit was mostly just thrown together from all our other parts (Schenn, Couturier, Read, Gagne, Knuble, McGinn, Coburn and L. Schenn manning the points, etc.) and was pretty terrible. Maybe not completely incompetent but pretty close, no cohesion or chemistry at all. The biggest problem with the second unit seemed to be that it didn't have a real quarterback or anyone to really bring the pieces together. Hopefully Streit can do that.
