If the Earth was at stake, wouldn't it ultimately be in the best interests for other teams to put the puck in their own net for us?

So far fetched. We're dealing in reality here.

We gave them Pujols so they should give us Ryan. Fair ?

Are we? I thought we were talking about fixing the Blues PP.

I prefer to believe that any aliens with the ability to deflect astroids towards Earth would be Blues fans.

I'm a bit confused by your comment. You do or don't like running an entire forward PP?

Personally, I feel like we have defensemen who are strong enough offensively that they should play on the poweplay. Petro, Cola, Russel, Shatty, Cole all have great shots and are strong passers. The (imo slight) benefit of playing forwards on the point on the PP is outweighed by the cost on defensive side, especially considering the Blues have already given up 3 shorties.

Sorry, that was unclear. Hitchcock is running complete forward units (i.e. Steen/Backes/Oshie, Perron/Berglund/Stewart, D'Agostini/Sobotka/Langenbrunner) on the PP as opposed to picking and choosing from among all the available forwards to best match up their individual talents to the specific PP scheme. He's doing that so that he has an intact forward unit to get the matchup he wants against the other team once the PP expires.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of that line of thinking. Probably my first real disagreement with what Hitchcock is doing/has done here.

Hitch should bag skate the next Blue that makes a drop pass to the opponent like that.

My god Oshie is a beast as a play maker and pick pocket. That boy is really impressing me. Surprised Backes didn't get that in the net!
