Nash can PK and is good at it, and the others depend on who we call up in place of Hags/Cally

What about Kreider on the PK? He's fast and rangy, also is a huge threat to score shorthanded.

With Cally & Hags shelved for the start of the season, expect to see PK units reminiscent of the early 90s when even scoring stars saw their share of penalty-killing duties... My guesses as to the PK lines to start the season?

PK1: Nash-Stepan
McDonagh-Girardi

PK2: Boyle-D. Moore
Staal-Stralman

If the situation warrants (i.e. one of the forwards I listed are in the sin bin), expect to see Kreider or MZA out on the ice to pressure the opponent's point men with their quickness and tenacity, maybe popping in a few shorthanded goals for good measure. I can't vouch for Dorsett's PK attributes... can somebody fill me in on that?
