I had some ideas about our PP units next season. What do you guys think?
The biggest adjustment I want to see is Gardiner taking #1 PP from Phaneuf. I think that would be beneficial to our team for several reasons; Phaneuf isn't a very good passer, players always seem to struggle at receiving his passes and his shot is wild and tends to go well wide of the net. Additionally, Phaneuf already logs a ton of minutes at even strength so it would keep him more rested for a long season and hopefully playoff run. Demoting him down to the #2 PP would keep his minutes down and improve our skating, puck movement and shot accuracy on our top PP unit.
The other change I obviously want to see is Clarkson being added to the PP. I don't think there is any need to put him on our first unit but I see him adding to our secondary PP depth.
