No no no. Let's try something like this;

Nash-Richards-Callahan
Girardi-MDZ

Three players struggling with scoring and two that can't hit the net. How could it possibly fail?

Miss some more contriution from the defenders, on PP as well as EQ. Think that has been the major difference between the teams in the first two games. The PP last game didn't look all that bad. Just make it crowded in front, and get the puck in there. With 2 for 35? might as well just place a big body like Boyle there, and pretend it's 4 on 4.

It almost doesn't even matter what lineup you put out there...the point men, no matter who they are, have all too often been unable to get a dangerous shot past the pk forwards.

Could that be because the PKers don't back up or have time to come up on the them because they know the point men are looking to pass the puck before they shoot?

The FIRST rule should be: Never have three fowards BEHIND the net.

I was actually hoping this was for realzies... and they were gonna try something else.

Ahhh well... business as usual.

Try same thing, expect diff results. Fail, rinse, repeat.

Why change things? Dumping it in, slapping it around the boards and either the pointman fumbling the puck at the blueline or Richards spazzing out after we begin to set up has been working so well for us! Create traffic, deflect the puck and more one timers you say? Nonsense we will beat you with our PP tied behind our back!

I knew Torts was a poster on HF, and he'd out himself accidentally sooner or later!

Just bring back Zubov and Leetch, I'm sure they'd do a better job than these guys.

Because he stinks on the power play, Tortorella explained. I dont know why. I wish I could play him on the power play. Every time I put him on, he stinks.

I think hes too quick. I think hes a jitterbug and he screws it up. But I may use him Id love to. And Im not trying to be a smart aleck. He stinks on the power play every time I put him on there.

-John Tortorella on Carl Hagelin
Yet he still has MDZ, Girardi and Richards out there.. This ****ing guy..

I see no reason to take him off.

I'd want to see this:

Callahan-Brassard-Nash
Zuccarello-Moore

Once we gain possession, Cally just parks his ass in front of the net. Zucc is a lefty, so he'll play the left point so he can pass all the way across the ice on his forehand. Moore is also a lefty, but we need to get him the shot from the middle of the ice.

Brassard will be Brassard, and Nash will hopefully be Nash.

Only problem here is Brassard will lose 60% of the draws.
I completely agree with you, not often do I read such a smart, factual post, kudos to you man! And I completely agree on the forwards. Although I have to be frank and admit I **** 2 bricks every time a weak defensive forward like Zuccarello is on the point. He will be beat if they clear the zone and rush the puck up ice. He is very weak defensively. I'd have this


Callahan-Brassard-Nash
Moore-Stralman

Zuccarello-Stepan-Pyatt/Boyle
Richards-MDZ

rather have Stralman on the PP or even Brassard at the point over Del Zotto. at least he doesnt shoot the puck wide and around the boards and into the neutral zone.

Is this a joke thread? not funny.

Nothing Torts does will help the PP. We will eventually score a PP goal, but! anything Torts touches on the PP and thinks ... stinks.

Wish he could just leave it alone for some games, like it was last game maybe. Must be difficult to drill anything when you change so much. Even if they don't have a good system, a familiar face in a familiar space is not to be underestimated. And agree, don't dump it in. Would like to see Stralman and Moore with some PP time, along With Zuke, Nash and Brassard.

I don't think it's redundant in terms of their skillsets, 2 Dmen on the power play might be though...

I would have no problem with McDonagh-Moore...They are both really good skaters, and that's what we don't do enough of on the power play, is MOVE.

Forget Torts and Sully and them being responsible for the PP....There's five ****ing guys out on the ice, playing hockey against 4 other dudes...forget your ****ing coach, FIND A WAY TO LIGHT THE LAMP DAMNIT!!!!!

Can we all tweet a reporter and tell them to ask why Moore isn't on the PP?

Pierre had a good point. There is absolutely no structure or coaching on the pp. It's every man for himself. It was funny hearing how pissed Pierre sounded at how inept they were.

Pierre had a good point? Listen to yourself.

Don't be so naive about the PP. Who gives a **** about Sully or Torts says. And for ****s sakes, Pierre saying it's every man for himself???? Some, if not most playoff power plays that dominate in the playoffs, are just INDIVIDUALS stepping up, working together, making a smart pass, and lighting the ****ing lamp..

**** the coaches, you are making this way too complicated...5v4 players need to find a way to score, period. It's the ****ing playoffs, 5b4 hockey, score a ****ing goal.

You've contradicted yourself right there. Pierre was animate and rightfully so. He was absolutely correct.

Also, your solution of "stop making it complicated and just score" is a bit bereft of anything tactical.
