What are you talking about?

He's far superior offensively(PP) than defensively(PK).

Rating a mediocre instead of a plain godawful doesn't justify playing the PP. He takes the puck behind the net on the PP, loses it, then coasts through the crowd at half-speed to go back to the point. Give me Liles or even Skrastins instead of him!

The same Karlis Skrastins that coughed the puck up three times in this game while making simple break-out passes? The same Skrastins that caused their third goal by throwing the puck away?

Please.

Marty Skoula gets alot of flack and deserves most of it, but his offensive game is miles ahead of Skrastins. J-M Liles is another story, and I feel he's already better than Skoula, but Marty has picked up power play points this year and our main PP guy, Rob Blake, has looked completely out of it this game thus far.

If you don't play Skoula on the PP where would you play him?

I've always viewed the offensive side of Skoula's game to be the superior part of his overall package.

I don't disagree - my only point in the beginning is that there are 4 better options than him to play the PP - Blake, Morris, Foote, Liles (and this thread started before Footer was hurt).

Regardless of being hurt I don't think Foote is a better option.

It's kinda like saying the left side of the crap smells better than the right.

Foote is actually very good on the PP. He has a nice shot, and makes good plays while on the point. He also has a very nice one-timer that is not as quite as hard as Blake's or Morris's, but it hits the net a lot more, which is what really counts. Footer's offensive game is very underrated, and could help him this year to finally get that Norris trophy if he keeps it up, and doesn't get injured which might have already happened.

As for Skoula, he also has a very nice shot from the point. He keeps it low, its almost always on net, and is fairly heavy the same way Blake's is, but not to the same degree. Unfortunately he still makes his usual mistakes too, like trying to keep the puck in and missing it, and screwing up the breakout from behind the net somehow.
