The Canes win the Stanley Cup with Cullen on the point on their PP. We sign Cullen and refuse to use him on the point. Even though we desperately need a PP point man, so much so that we traded for Ozo hoping he would remedy that problem. As mentioned in this thread we misused Bobby Holik. The list goes on and on. Its an organizational problem very simply put we do not put players into the best situation to succeed. Period.
I think the entire second unit of the PP is a mess. I would even consider breaking up the first unit and balance out both units.

PP1:

Jagr-Prucha-Hall
Cullen-Tyutin

PP2:

Straka-Nylander-Shanny
Pock/Rachunek-Rozsival

The team needs something to get the second unit going. Especially since it's often the Straka-Nylander-Jagr line that draws the penalty and does not start the PP on the ice.
