Reading about the pp reminds me of how much of a Ninja Markov is when he skates to the net and is completely forgotten.

This is what makes me afraid to team him with Ninja Desharnais.

Law of Conservation of Ninjutsu. The less ninjas there are, the more dangerous they get. A ninja army is a bunch of mooks. A single ninja is an unstoppable dealer of murder, death incarnate.

Habs never forgot the Sheldon Shot. it worked and the habs had a great PP.
Strait replaces Sheldon and still it's the same PP Plan
Then along came Kovalev and his side board general act, it also worked good.
The problem with all this is Habs forgot how to let the forwards create scoring chances. The center on the PP was reduced to a rebound artist.
Now that the habs don't have a BIG shot from the blueline and a player that can deek anybody out of anything. Nothing is working.

Let me rephrase that. Nothing Martin tried worked.
Ok, stop the presses, now it's Therrien, He sure had a lot of time to look over all the tapes. I suspect the 2012-13 PP won't look like the 2011-12 PP.

There is only one puck. When one of them has it the other can ninja their way through. With your analogy i would say that one can be a decoy ninja while the other is the assassin disguised as a Geisha for the close kill.

Talented puck movers should be able to mesh together. The only knock i could see happening is that Desharnais might try too hard to pass. Sometimes the best option is a shot. If he can work on shooting the puck up close i think we could have a lethal pp.

Also I use to think it would not work with pk and markov unless they would swap sides for the one timer. Its a recipe that has worked well for us. But now i think our pp format will be focused on puck movement weak shot and crashing the net. Lets not forget.....we also have emelin in the mix for some pp time. He has a good shot as well.

Biggest problem I found this year was the inability to even set up in the offensive zone. The dump and chase had no chase - easy clear. When they tried to carry the puck into the zone (looking at Gomez on this one) there would be 3-4 opposing players standing at the blueline and with a wave of the stick they would stop the rush.

If you can't set the PP up you can't score.

Weber couldn't even hold the puck in the offensive zone. Guy couldn't catch a pass at the blue line to save his life which forced the team back in the neutral zone all the time.

Godawful.

That is a good point, but I don't think it was because of Weber's puckhandling capability.

I suspect it was because of his awful positioning. Is it possible Weber doesn't have that much hockey IQ?
