Of the rightys on the Rangers, Strålman is the only one who can one-time it properly. But he was hardly utilized in that role, Torts put him on the right side when he got to play on the PP.

An effective PP needs:

1 net guy, handedness irrelevant.

1 shooter.

1 pointman, same handedness as the shooter.

2 playmakers, opposite handedness of the shooter and pointman.

The Rangers optimal PP is either:

Net: Callahan
Shooter: Nash
PPQB: Del Zotto/McD/Moore/Brasard/Zuccarello
Low PM: Stepan
High PM: Strålman/Girardi

Needs a better RH playmaker up high.

2nd option, RH shot:

Net: Callahan
Shooter: Strålman
PPQB: Stepan
PMs: Brassard/Zuccarello/Del Zotto/Nash

Conclusion: Too few PP compatible RH shots on the roster.
