Bouillon isn't the answer. What are our options?

Markov - Subban for all the pp?
Markov alternate with Diaz and Subban stay there ?
Markov - Subban for 1/2 and Diaz - Plekanec for 1/2??
Continue with Therrien Stategy?
Other?

If I remember Plekanec was good on the PP at the qb

Ideal PP lines would be:

Gally - Eller - Gally
Markov - Subban

Pacioretty - Briere - Bourque
Diaz - Plekanec

No way Bouillon/Desharnais get taken off the PP though, Pleks wasn't great on the point on the PP but he's a million times better than Bouillon. Briere would be a lot more effective having two bigger bodies opening up room for him on the PP.

Bingo...Pleks can play the point on the 2nd PP, at least until Emelin is back.

Markov-Subban and swap in Diaz sometimes... I don't think I want to see Bouillon on the PP ever again.

Now that Plekanec is barely getting any PP time, I would use him on the point again. It wasn't super conclusive the first time but he can't be worst than Bouillon.

EGG
Markov-Subban

Pacioretty-Briere-Bourque (rather have Bourque than DD, we have enough player that will pass the puck around)
Plekanec-Diaz (or Subban for 2 min)

Subban stays, Markov alt with Diaz.

Markov is PP QB not Subban, if someone should stay 2 min it's Markov.

So I say leave Subban and Markov for the full PP.

Plekanec has the vision to make those crazy passes from the blue line to the wide open guy.

I don't like the idea of playing Subban the whole 2 minute PP. He's our best 5 on 5 d-man, I'd rather play him a minute and still have him for a shift 30-60 seconds after the PP is over.

Markov is the guy that runs the whole PP, the true QB, if anybody should play 2 minutes it's him, though I'm not a fan of doing that all the time...depends on the game situation.

Ideally, two minutes Marky / Subban.

But Marky might not be able to stand it... so rotate Marky / Diaz.

Play Beaulieu. At the very least dress him as a 7th D with PP Time

Lol how was Markov the PP quaterback this year so far? From what ive seen its all Subban been responsible for our PP goals this year. First last game against PHI, it was all him with his fake shot/pass wich led to a gally goal. Then last game, it was pacioretty setting up Subban huge slapshot. Markov got a secondary assists because he dumped the puck in pacioretty direction after struggling to enter the zone and almost loosing the puck. Tought i agree i'd rather have Markov to assit Subban than anyone else so far, i totally disagree hes the PP QB, now its Subban all the way.

When Emelin returns have him and Markov alternate beside Subby. Emelin has a great shot. Put Bouillon out on an ice floe like the Inuit do.

The thing is, it's very dangerous to have a forward at the point on the second PP unit because most of the time, the penality will end and the team could be stuck with 4 forwards on the ice for a pretty long time.

Am I the only one who has bad memories of Plekanec playing the QB 2 years ago when Markov was hurt?

I might be wrong, but I also think he said he didn't like it.

Edit : nope, hfboards hated it! http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/ar.../t-993043.html

Sure, it didn't help that the Habs gave their first goal of the season to the Leafs while they were on PP with Pleky playing at the point!

There are a lot of problems besides just ice time.

The whole PP is premised upon PK's shot. Yet he's almost never in a position for a 1-timer. He and Markov need to switch sides as soon as we have puck possesion in the offensive zone. They wait way to longer to make the switch.

There is hardly any scoring threats besides Subban. You need viable down-low plays in order to keep the PKers honest so that they don't just make sure Subban is always covered.

My take is we need a player that can pass and shoot on the high right boards. Galchenyuk/Plekanec already do this on occasion just not often enough. Doing so opens up another passing lane for Markov and will force them to not cover Subban as much since doing so would result in a lot more 4vs3 situations.

I would love to see Emelin on the PP at some point in the future. He can't be worse than Bouillon.

Patches has a really sharp wrist shot too.

LOL...

Watch the PP goal again! Markov made it happen because he opened up space for Patches and Subban. He also got robbed twice earlier by MacDonald.

When on the PP, Markov>Subban! Remember when Diaz looked like a superstar with Marky last season?

I love Subban just as much as you guys but the hate Markov gets in here is RIDICULOUS.
