illadivesed and poorly timed shots on the powerplay can be extremely costsly in terms of puck possesion. You dont need to look further for evidence than the end of Renny's tenure and the slew of shorthanded goals given up as a result of poor shooting decisions that bounced free for breakaways and odd man rushes

on the powerplay, we need better puck control and passing which will in turn lead to more quality shots
Agreed. Also not enough puck and player movement either.

The fact that everyone is stationary could be why there aren't many shots taken.

Look at the alternatives for a second - this is not a deep team when it comes to skill.

Go ahead and change things up - change the strategy, change the positions, but for God's sake what does changing the personnel do when Erik Christensen is your next option?

Oh right, thats Torts' answer to everything and anything that goes wrong.
Keep answering your own questions and you will make a perfect sense!!!

Torts can do highlighted bold, but doesn't like responsibility that comes with it. Therefore he prefers the players to do what should have been his job. This way he blames them in case success doesn't come. All he does is he changes the performers, instead of instructing them. This way he at the same time sends the message he doesn't like the end result and requires THEM to come up with the tactical change that is needed. Christ may not be the best performer out there, but he is incredibly smart for a NHL player. He knows how the play should develop. That is why he is out there doing coaches job.

No one should pay any attention to the lines in practice or even come gamenight because if they don't work within 5-10 minutes, Torts will go back to the normal lines anyway.

Omg please not this mindset.

Throw the puck on net 5-on-5. PP's are about movement. Not shooting, and not really passing. Sure the pass has to be there when the time is right, and the shot has to be on net, but PP's where the players are in motion score goals. Not the ones that shoot the most.

When d-men pass down below the halfboards they should be driving down low, and the guy on the puck should be using that space to make a play. Colorado based a ton of PP pts off this concept, as do the Pens.

The NYR stand still far too much. There's no shooting lane's when you're stabnding still, and throwing the puck into a 100% defensive minded unit randomly to "just get it on net" is going to be a turnover and clear.

It is this, rather than the "not shooting" that is the problem...too often the PP unit gets set up and remains stationary as if they're expecting the other guys to move out of the way and give them a shooting lane...I think that's why people start yelling at them to shoot...but they have to do more to create the opening by pulling the other guys out of their defensive positions...just shooting the puck more is not the answer

I think that move has some logic.. both Richards and Gaborik tend to organize the PP and sometimes think differently, so why not to split them.

Getting EC some good PP time to showcase him. Gotta prop him up, Nashville isn't going to give up their 3rd rounder easily.
