Someone needs to start chanting "Fire Sully" on Saturday.

It's Sullivan's fault that Stepan is dog ****. Dude can't finish to save his ****ing life. Two golden opportunities tonight.

Care to explain our other half-assed 5-on-3s and power plays?

I do believe the strategy on the PP and the way they're drawing it up and practicing it is a big part of the problem. That said, it seems to be a NYR curse as much as a symptom of the coaches/players. I don't know what to think.

It is Sully's fault however that our PP is set up in a fashion that Stepan gets looks for 1 timers when we have Nash and Gaborik on the ice.

Our power play has been dog **** for more than half a decade, before Sullivan ever took over. Talent or coaching?

This teams is awful 5 on 5, centers are playing awful hockey. How often do we get shots on net from the point? We're playing a forward at the point and still can't do a damn thing.

As long as Torts is here, Sullivan will be too. That is unless someone hires him to be a Head Coach, which may not be out of the question at the end of this season.

Whoever is drawing it up should let someone else do it. Nobody ever moves on our PP. It is incredibly stationary. How are they supposed to open up a hole when we send five guys out there who just stand around in their spots and pass? They should bring Leetch in for a few practices and let him give them some tips.

Except, back then, the only reliable player we could fall back upon was Jagr, and he succeeded.

We now have Richards, Gaborik, and Nash and we get this: power plays where we're lucky to see a shot or two?!

Gaborik, Richards, and Nash on the PP and can't even get more than 2 ****ing shots on a 5 on 3.

Richards isn't what he was, dude is on the decline, fans overvalue him.

I don't care if they keep him or fire him, don't think much will change either way.

Why is it always fire? Why can't it be hire?

...hire another assistant coach, relegate Sullivan to strictly defense. win-win.

Agreed.


I just dont and cant understand why our 5 on 3 has had the same strategy for the past two years which is a stationary setup that constantly attempts a backdoor play. It is driving me insane.

There has to be a PP specialist somewhere out there looking for a work.

What the were doing tonight was pretty standard as far as power-plays go. There's really not much to "draw up". Like I said in the power-play thread, a power-play's success is based more on the personnel's creativity than what the coach is drawing up. Usually with the set-up they were running you're either going to end up with a nice cross-crease back-door tap-in (mad hyphens) or a seem pass to the far-side D-man who is sneaking in for the one-timer. They went for the cross-crease shot a couple times and also went for the point-shot but every attempt was stifled by whoever was shooting's inability to finish.

I kind of think we should go back to the Umbrella set-up and have to guys parked right in front of the goalie. One of these guys would be Pyatt (obviously he's good around the net) and probably Nash or Cally as well. The three point-men for me would be Stralman, Del Zotto (playing their off-side for the one-timer) and I guess Richards since we're going to need a center-man for faceoffs (although Cally could take them apparently.)

Thoughts? I just feel like the biggest thing lacking in our power-play tonight was two huge bodies parked in front of Bryz... ESPECIALLY on a 5 on 3 where the defensemen are forced to worry about them.
