That's the third* ad hominem from you in our little (pointless) exchange now.

I'll retire.

*Same subject thogh

And I'll continue to reitterate it. Boudreau's goal is not to make Selanne look good. It's to win hockey games.

The goal of the PP is to score. If they get Selanne away from the better defenders, that's an effective way to create scoring. Most of the TOI disparity is coming from dominance by the PP1 with puck possession.

Also (another reason stats without context are worthless) - when a PP scores, the PP ends for TOI. If the PP2 is scoring faster but the PP1 is out their entire shift, you'd expect the PP1 to have a larger TOI.

Yes, I'm pissed.
We're 7/15 in the last 5. It's pretty ballsy to get pissed about the handling of the PP.

I love how we complain about everything despite the Ducks being in first place in the division, second overall, and the #1 PP at the moment. That is the beauty of the times currently.

Now if we really want something to complain about, lets start a Penaly Killing thread.

I love the 1a/1b with the units and that 1a gets pulled after 1 minute (as soon as the defense clear it that is).

I just don't understand some of the personal choices. What I remember last game was:

1a) Getzlaf Perry Bonino Fowler Beach
1b) Koivu Selanne Ryan Souray Lovejoy

I would change replace Bonino w/ Palmieri and Lovejoy with Sbisa or let Souray play extended minutes (he's not as active on the PP as others... basically waits to shoot at top of the blueline) .

Last game Palmieri got hurt. He and Beauch had flip flopped the prior game and Palmieri had moved to the point on the first unit.

I think it's time to sign Selanne to a long term franchise deal and rebuild around him, and guarantee him the top PP unit for as long as he remains a Duck.

10-year contract worth $75M?

Lets do it.

At least $75M.... Make the final year incentive laden, in case he starts to show signs of rust (which is doubtful, but just in case).

BB obviously plays the percentages. PP1 keeps the puck and uses up time and wears out PK1 then PP2 scores at the end of the 2 minutes. Those 2 minutes are minutes in which the opponent scores very rarely. Percentages. Genius stuff.

PP1 can't keep the puck in the zone. Taken off the ice after 50 seconds. That did not use to happen in recent years.

2nd PP unit should start powerplays more often so that would balance PP-time.
