Why doesn't Emelin receive PP time?

What will it take for Emelin to receive PP time over the likes of Campoli and Weber? Has the coaching staff heard of the Russian's abilities on the man advantage (the thing he was well-known for in the KHL)? Or has the coaching staff been noticing Campoli's putrid mess of a play in general and Weber's inability to keep the puck in the offensive zone? This late in this season, it would seem like a logical and sensed decision to allow a NHL rookie to show his abilities in those situations and gain experience, but apparently it is rocket science for Cunneyworth. Emelin wouldn't receive PP time from this coaching staff if he had an urge to urinate in practice.

I'll end this OP on a video, people. Enjoy.

Emelin is the smoothest skater on this team, bar none. He has awesome agility and good puck handling skills. He'll be given his chance in due time I'm sure. Unfortunately we hired the one coach that makes us want to bang our head against the wall more than JM.

The problem is that Cunneyworth knows he won't be back with the team next year, hence he has no incentive to prepare the youth (e.g. Emelin and Eller) for bigger roles next season.

He is trying to play the assets on the PP that he believes will give the team the best chance to score, since he's essentially trying to win as much as possible to audition for his next job.

The funny thing is that if he had a keener eye for talent, he would have realized that the PP would be better off with Emelin and Eller over guys like Campoli.

Habs are retarded. They didn't even put the Kostitsyns on the same line.

Markov didn't get any powerplay time his first year over here either. Let him adjust to the game for a full season first, and next year he should find his way on the 2nd wave.

Are you already complaining about our coach?

Some people are just impossible to please

Seriously, if you find RC annoying then you would complain no matter who's behind the bench. He has nothing to work with and he's doing the best with what he has. He's given PP time to Cole and to Eller (though not as much as he should be giving), he's just stuck coaching a team that has no drive.

Because he needs to be on the ice when the PP is over so he can log top 4 minutes. There.

He will, next year...

markov - emelin

Markov gets to stay on his strong side on the PP, emelin left handed for the one timer, OR can make a great pass of his own

Pk second wave (tho can turn into the first wave seemlessly)

I am pleased...I'm pleased that we're getting a top 10 pick for once.

He's not developing youth, which is a problem that we've had for as long as I've watched the habs. I don't want to see Eller, Emelin, Leblanc or anyone else to be thrown out of town because they're not being managed properly. We've seen it happen far too often. Am I blaming RC for losing? No, I'm blaming RC for not giving the young guys a chance to play when we've already mailed this season in. Eller actually has a willingness to win, Gomez doesn't.

Anywho, someone already said it; RC is trying to hold onto his job so anyone who makes mistakes will be benched.

While you were making a joke.. it made me realize that you have to consider the coach's imperative to make his GM look good. PG went ahead and got Campoli. To relegate him to the bench and not give him any opportunity to "do what he's good at" would highlight the failures of his GM which is something I'm sure coaches are sensible to.

One failure leads to another leads to another leads to..

Oh boy. RC is a genius now ? RC is horrible and dumb. We have every right to complain. We replaced turd with crap. What a joke.

Pffff Campoli is way better on the PP................. hahaha. I guess management doesn't want to inflate his next contract, because other than that, it doesn't make any sense.

Love how you use the word ''already'' while RC has been a coach for nearly three months.

Exactly. Let's also not forget that we had an average PP, so there would actually be a reason for the coach to keep players off of it if he wanted to.
This year however, our PP is one of the worst in the league, so there's no reason not to try new guys, and even more so when you have guys like Campoli and Gomez being used out there.

It doesn't limit itself to Emelin either, or just the PP. RC has refused to break up the first line in order to balance things out better. He turned Plekanec into a checking center, kept the first line intact, and Eller has been flipflopped from one role to another not really knowing what to do. Not only that, but he also kept the first line as the first PP unit that constantly get to play with the 1st D pairing.
RC's management of personnel has been the worst I've ever seen.
