A big problem I'm seeing is the PP is run through Buff and Enstrom while neither of them have actually taken any good one timers or made any real good plays from the point. There is not nearly enough movement.
Yeah, I would tend to agree. PP as a whole is very static, they're just not stretching the PK enough and creating lanes.
The leaders meeting with Noel is interesting, and I love that they were able to discuss things with him. Having leaders who actually have some pull but also the spine to let their coach know how they feel when it comes to how some things are done can be a good thing. Having a give and take relationship with the players and coaching staff is key. I like that we've come together like this.
I'm also happy Letang got a 2 game suspension for his hit on Burmistrov. Well deserved in my opinion.
Good discussion re; the PP. I'm definitely in agreement that we should put Byfuglien down low (infront of the net) with Enstrom and Bogosian on the point. Then i'd put Burmistrov on one wing and one of Ladd, Kane or Little on the other.
It would at least give us plenty of options and enough creativity out there to stand a good chance at being effective.
