YOU Be the Coach: Who should be on the Point on the PP?

I am going to start a few of these over the weeks and see how it goes, if it goes bad, then I will stop, if it goes good, then i may continue


The PP points usually consist of as of TODAY, Girardi, Richards, Zucc, Moore, Del Zotto, Stalman


Now todays question is, as the COACH, do you put in McD or Girardi on the point?

For me, no-brainer.. Girardi is a below average offensive player IMO. McD has a ton of potential still to be a good offensive player but he is not getting the PP he need to develop. He also shows great flashes when he is up there

The Verdict for me:

MCD (and ITS NOT CLOSE). Give him the time. Moore deserves it and is getting it on the 2nd unit, give it to McD as well.....

This should be McD, and not even close.

What "untapped offensive potential" does Tortorella see in Dan Girardi? The ability to shoot high and wide? Or try that "bank it off the boards" play 50X a game? So stupid, that man is.

Girardi is sadly our best option for the point on the PP. Blame Glen for constructing a bad roster. Asking McDonagh to play the PP is asking way above his responsibilities.

C) Moore and/or Stralman

They're doing with McDonagh what they did with Staal: More defensive role and PK time at first, PP time later on. Plus, he doesn't need to be playing any more minutes than he has.

The answer is it doesn't matter if none of them shoot through traffic. Which none of them do.

He's been given shots and he isn't better than MDZ or Richards, both LH players that play the point.

It's like asking Pyatt to play a top 6 role

2 options is a bad poll. neither one should be.
problem a: mcd is a left handed shot, so is del zotto-- ie one gets pumped down
problem b: give me moore over mcd on the pp, or stralman over girardi if right side is only option
problem c: life is over. doesn't matter what we do :|


to answer the actual poll... probably mcdonagh

Give me:
Stralman-McD on 1st unit.

Moore-Whoever on 2nd unit.

Many will argue. But DZ is not a good PP player.

I knew it was going to be Kershaw voting for Girardi when I saw he had one vote. Girardi is horrible on the PP and every time I see him there I lose a year off my life. Can't keep the puck in, gets his shot blocked so easily and lobs weak wristers when there is an open lane. It hurts watching him on the PP.

He plays one of the points. Most NHL teams have a LH-RH tandem.

Don't think McDonagh's skills translate to the powerplay at all.

He shouldn't be getting one.

He's never been a point producer at any level, so why will he suddenly be QBing a PP in the freaking NHL?

Girardi on our team sadly has the best ability to get shots through and capably move the puck in a creative pattern. It just sucks for him that he doesn't have enough footspeed to get to loose pucks.

McDonagh is a much better skater, passer, and puckhandler than Girardi. Girardi has a better shot. I would rather have McDonagh. Girardi fumbles the puck at the blue line and kills our chances much too often.

McD, easily. Stronger shot and gets it through more often.

Girardi cannot play the PP point.
