I agree. Over our first few games I have been increasingly frustrated with Edler on the PP. Although he's played well, it almost seems like he is using Garrison as a decoy to give himself more opportunities at goal. We have to use Garrison as our Salo of we want him to be productive, and at the moment the Sedins+Edler seem reluctant to feed him the puck. Hopefully this changes with time.
Why are people complaining about the pp? Did i miss a game since the Anaheim game where they scored 3 pp goals. Edler has 2 pp goals already. I know we all think we are experts but putting your best pp players on the first unit seems pretty common. Other teams know they need to take Garrison away leading to more space for everyone else. I do not care in Garrison ever scores a goal as long as the pp is in the top 5 in the league.

Three lines that can score, but still are very reliable defensively and can play in any situation. Then the fourth line (basically a second third line) can either be the checking line or take a regular rotation. I think its pretty good balance all around.
San Jose is playing well, playing physical, scoring lots and their PP is clicking. The Canucks have gotten better with every game they've played. We'll need that trend to continue if we're gonna get the W against the Sharks. Should be a good one!
