The power play last year generated around the same shots/minute, but there was better puck movement and position swapping so shots were taken in better situations.

Eakins' strengths, to my eyes, are about instilling philosophies and overall systems. I don't think he's great at details the way that some coaches are, and we've got Kelly Buchberger running our PP this year. Krueger was at least able to compensate for the Buchberger ****show.
