The powerplay: post the units you'd like to see out there

1) Bickell Toews Kane
Leddy Sharp

2) Saad Shaw Hossa
Keith Seabrook

I'm hoping Pirri takes the 2C spot on the PP. Shaw's in my lineup for now though.

Agreed with what you got there.

Agreed, but if Hayes makes the team, I would love to see his big body and soft hands in front of the net on the second PP unit. Ben Smith is a master of tip ins as well, but I'd save him for PK duties.

Bickell-Toews-Kane
Keith-Hossa


Sharp-Pirri-Morin/Hayes/Saad
Seabrook-Leddy (off sides)

Although I've been partial to Hammer for years now cause of his accurate shot from the point, but I doubt he gets the opportunity. Pirri's playmaking and underrated shot will be more than welcomed though. I might be alone, but I also like Morin on the unit or on the point as well. His shot is nasty. The kids might inject some life on a lifeless PP and it's good to mix it up with kids and the vets. (Rockford had a good PP last year irc)

Not a fan of Seabs on the PP, but with only Sharp (who I still don't like at the point), Morin and Rosy there isn't too many right handed shots from the point and we need one on the PP. I also like Leddy and Kane apart cause they are the only two who can consistently carry the puck up the ice (although Pirri isn't bad either) and Seabs can cover for Leddy in case there's an odd man rush.

Damn.. forgot Hossa is better on the point. Ima change the units.. Great thread though. Would love to hear the other posters perspectives.

Personally I think Kane and Hossa should be together. The PP always seemed like it did something when they were together in OT and other occasions. How many one timer goals did Hossa have after Kane passed to him this past season? Could just be a small sample size and coincidence.

I would try it at least ... it can't be worse as what we had last season.
Sharp(25)-Toews(18)-Shaw
Bickell-Kane(18)-Hossa(27)


having these special units also mean that players are split to two equal lines considering individual PP productivity in last three seasons.IMO is better split firepower to both PP units, so they are dangerous whole <2 minutes.'Elite' 1st unit and 'crippled' 2nd unit like some fans wish would mean that Hawks would use only 50% of their PP time properly.I think Q doesn't like it either.

Looks good. Maybe Pirri could work some magic on the 2nd unit if he makes the team.

Rozsival for Sharp on the point, Sharp at center with Saad and Hossa but ultimately, I would like to work Pirri in and then use Saad on the PK more instead of the PP.

Bickell (net) - Toews - Kane (side wall) - Sharp (point) - Hossa (point)


until we get a D man with a damn shot - we can't put anyone back there

Bickell has to be on the PP for sure. I like the Hjammer on the point formation but with Q this - who the hell knows why - won't happen. His Shot would be a weapon.

Why would anyone put Hammer on the PP? When has anyone - ever - seen Hjalmarsson take a one-timer? He has a big shot, that he needs time to get off. He's not a PP option, and certainly not one over Seabrook.

Bickell - Toews - Kane
Sharp - Keith

Saad - Pirri - Hossa
Seabrook - Leddy

Leddy and Seabrook both have decent shots (I think Leddy actually has a pretty damn good shot when he wants to use it). When Keith is on his shot is also quality.

Every team can't have a Suter/Weber/Karlsson on the point.

The "Leddy should be the QB" thing is tired and it's completely missing the point. No "pointman" on the first PP unit is going to "QB" anything. The QB on the first unit is Patrick Kane. The PP runs through him. The best thing Chicago can do is let him run it - as he does - and instructing the pointmen (preferably Sharp and Keith) to one-time shots when Kane feeds them. Then, you have Bickell in front of the net, and Toews in the corner ready to crash for rebounds, while Kane serves as the playmaker, he'll also be able to coast into openings in the slots if any rebounds get past Bickell/Toews.

I should have clarified that Leddy should be running it when Kane is not out there. I'd keep them on different units. The best player at zone-entry not named Patrick Kane is Nick Leddy, ane he's great bringing the puck up ice through the neutral zone. He also may be the best defenseman at actually getting shots through traffic and on net.

I'd argue Leddy is better at zone entry than Kane. Kane has the niftier moves, but he coughs it up at the blue line more than Nick. When Leddy has the puck with a head of steam he is unstoppable. That's the first talking point on why he should be on the first unit, among the slew of other things he does (offensively) well.

I generally like these units. The only big change I'd make is putting Roszival out there instead of Seabrook. He has a better (more accurate) shot, and doesn't make half the blunders Seabrook does with the puck.

Wasn't sure where to put this, but what do you guys expect the lines to be for 5 on 5 this year?

Bickell/Saad - Toews - Kane
Sharp - Pirri/Kruger/LeBlanc/Danault - Hossa
Bickell/Saad - Shaw - Morin
Kruger - Handzus - Smith
Bollig

Pirri has the best chance at being the 2nd line centre, followed by Kruger, then LeBlanc, then Danault. Shaw has a chance as well, but I don't see him sticking between Hossa/Sharp.
