That just means you need to keep doing it. It'll work some time...

We're a month into the season and it hasn't worked but Sacco knows it's coming. It's only a matter of time now.

All these powerplays might actually be a negative

Wow, such an awful PP.

We don't even get setup. I don' think there is a worse team at setting up the PP.

And once the floodgates open, Sacco will never give it up...unless it actually starts working.

When banging your head against a wall, you don't give up and grab a hammer because the wall isn't budging, you bang your head harder!

A classic case of catching a team flat footed. Expect the ducks to get their legs back sometime in this game but hopefully the avs can hold on. It won't be easy.

My god does our pp suck, even with the 2 ahl guys the avs can't get into the zone. Funniest part was having landeskog on the point.

It's only been one period of play and we had a man advantage for almost half of the period. There's still a lot of hockey to play.

I expect the Ducks to come out with some fire to start the 2nd.

Avs were playing better in ES than on the PP. Struggling with Ducks aggressive pressure on the puck carrier. I guess the problem is that Avs are so set on doing it one way that they can't exploit the big space that opens up when two Ducks forwards are up high.

I hope Sacco takes your advice with the whole head, hammer, and wall thing.

This was posted in the prospects thread, but this is a better view. OH LAWD. Wouldn't mind packaging O'reilly and our pick for this guy.

Screw that. It'd be a repeat of fancy pants Duchene, trying to dangle around everything. I'm fine to just sit and wait out Radar.

Drouin will be great, but I don't expect him to be able to dangle like that against NHL defenders.

I don't see why he can't do it. Plenty of players before him have done, with his size and smaller. JD has all the tools to become a great player and he will.

Guy will be like Datsyuk. He has the ability to make any player look stupid if they make the wrong play on him or try to be too aggressive. He's also a great passer and has good vision.

I know it looks like he's a bit of a puck hog, but if you can make plays like that why not.
