Yes but Gonchar ran the PP. he would slide into the middle of the ice and slapshot the puck right on net almost every time. We certianly miss that. Letang sure cant do it. We also had alot of Shutdown guys on the roster when we won the cup

Gonchar
Scuderi
Orpik
Gill
Letang
Eaton

Ranked by icetime. 2 offensive and 4 defensive. I like that ratio
