He and Del Zotto on the points for the 2nd unit.

I can see it now. Shot wide, around the boards and out. Rinse and repeat from either side.
I have no idea. It's like putting Tim Gleason or Brooks Orpik on the power play. It makes no sense, and he has no offensive game at all. He isn't mobile enough to be a threat, and his only PP offense has come from being on the end of some amazing final passes.

We have two dmen that should be used purely for defense and on the PK. Staal and Girardi. We have dmen in Stralman and MDZ that should be used mostly on the power play, less on the PK. And we have two guys in Moore and McDonagh that are very solid in either role. Make it work.

Girardi on the power play is wasting minutes he could be spending avoiding goals against at even strength.
