The Power Play Units

What will the personnel be on the 2 Power Play units?
a - With The Nuge and Gagner healthy
b - To start the season (without them)

What's being hinted at so far in games or at camp with how the coaches will structure it?

i.e. Eberle-Perron look great together... Schultz is 1st pairing, if not a 2 minute guy...

So what do ya think?

You can answer C and D if ya like...
c - what do you think the coaches are setting up to do?
d - what would you do, or want to see?

Tried to do it like a PP chart but it looks all messed up when posted so I deleted it. Just let Yakupov shoot the puck.

This looks good. Perron on unit one, he has great hands and a good shot, feisty enough to play infront of the net.

With RNH/ Gagner out

One PP consisting of Hall, Hemsky, Perron, Schultz, (Larsen or Ference). probaly classic half wall set up.

RNH places here when hes back. Hall shifts to low goal line position, Perron to 2nd PP

2nd PP (which I am pushing for the most)

Umberella consisting of Eberle on left side, Belov up top, Yakupov on right side. Joensuu in front. Not sure about other player, maybe another front net presence, maybe Perron

Heres why I like it
- Eberle has option to pass to Yakupov for one timers, deadly
-Eberle can walk in and shoot, deadly.
-Belov has a cannon, unleash it for as many shoots/chances as possible
-Yakupov has a rocket, lets also use it. We saw it last night with 3 in a row hitting the net.
-JJ in front being a front net presence/ puck retrival.
- Perhaps Perron as front net presence as well or as low puck distubter guy

I just want this PP to shoot as much as possible. Any time you see a chance, unleash one. No more of this cute passing plays trying to find the highlight reel goal, but only getting two shots on net

From what we've seen so far in preseason games (this could all be blown out by tomorrow's game against Dallas):

- Smyth stands in front of the net but shifts to the left of it to be an outlet for Hemsky on the left half boards.

- Hemsky stands on the left halfboard QBing the 1st unit.

- Hall essentially acts as a rover. He's mostly in the slot looking to get set-up by Hemsky or Smyth for one-timers.

- J. Schultz operates at the top of the umbrella. He's primarily looking to give it back to Hemsky, set up the Yak-a-Cannon, or wrist one towards the twine or look for a tip.

- Yakupov better be in his office on the right faceoff circle. Anything higher (one-timer at the point) is a fail.

Not really sure how the 2nd unit is going to operate with both Eberle and Perron being highlights on the left side for one-timers/snipes. Belov is obviously the cannon. Joensuu in front. Arcobello probably operates on the right halfboards.

I really like these units. I think J. Schulz and yaks will cause havoc up top.

The PP is definitely an area that will suffer with the loss of RNH and Gagner. EDM essentially lost their two most effective playmakers. I expect the PP conversion percentage will be pretty low while RNH is out specifically.

This, RNH, J Schultz, and Yak are by far and away our most dangerous PP weapons. The PP suffered last year when RNH was playing with an injured shoulder. Imagine how bad it'll be with him out period. Hopefully Yak rips it up.

I think we should give Petry a look on one of the units. What better opportunity to use his shot? Some mix of 3d and 7f on both units:

---------NET---------
----------94---------
---83------------4---
---------------------
-----2---------------
--------------77-----


---------NET---------
--57------6----------
-----------------64---
---14-----------------
----------------------
---------19-----------

Two balanced units. No Unit 1 or 2, just two groups with a threat to cash in on the PP.

You've got two obvious choices in front of the net with Smyth and Joenssu for rebounds and hopefully puck retrieval.

Two left-handed one time shots for Hemsky or Petry to pass to in Belov and Hall. Thing about Petry is he likes to move laterally and change angles when he has the puck so he'll try to create space for clearer shot for 77 and 4. Got a great shot himself, with the exception of accuracy. I think Belov has shown some steadiness and composure to make the play to Petry for a one-timer as well.

On the other unit you've got Yak's one-timer as the focal point of the PP. He's the most dangerous weapon on that unit and the biggest threat to score. So you give him three players completely capable of moving the puck to him at any given time in Perron, Eberle and Schultz. If the one-time play is being defended, Perron and Eberle are both smart enough to create half wall plays by swtiching positions and looking for Joensuu back door with Yak as a distraction. Schultz does what he does best at the top of the umbrella and Qb's the unit, getting it on net when necessary and making the right passes.

I think that looks okay until 89 and 93 are healthy.

I also think Perron would be a good player to try in front of the net. He's big enough to handle it and also seems to be great at deflecting/tipping the puck, as evidenced in the last game.

Pretty similar to what I had in mind. However 19 is on #1 and 77 is on #2.

In yours PP 1 lacks a PP quarter back, I dont think Hall is one yet, hes still reckless with the puck at times. Hemsky possibily but on the PP he also holds the puck to long or looks to pass to much. I think Schultz could be the QB on #1. He has the poise to control the puck up top and distrbute it around or shoot it

On #2, I dont really have a PP QB to control pace, but I have 3 guys (14,64,77) who split that duty up top

Eakins said in his interview that today was the first day they worked on the powerplay....That would explain a couple things from preseason thus far, though we have still been dangerous.

I would have JS and Ference as my point-men. JS would be the QB, whereas Ference will just play it simple.

You have Yak on one side and Eberle on the other

You put Hall in the middle of the ice.

Second PP

Larsen and Belov on the point

Perron will be on one wing. Arcabello can play center, but will set up on the opposite side of Perron.

Then you have Smyth for net presence and anything behind the net.

That's how I would set it up.

edit: I don't like using forwards on the point.

I'm not opposed to inserting Hemsky somewhere, but... he has a bad habit of keeping the puck for too long.

While I agree 100%, judging from the last game that Arcobello kid looked like he may be able to hold the fort.

He's made some pretty sweet passes in the 2 games I've seen of him so far.

So i asked this before the season where people were guessing for the most part...

So now there's likely is a little more consistency.

What are the Oilers presently using as their 2 primary units these last couple games?
