Just curious...

I saw something happen last night that I can't remember seeing in quite a while...and if it has, it never gets mentioned.

So I'm curious...when was the last time you remember someone playing a whole two minute power play? Who was it and when did it happen? I saw it happen last night...but before that...who knows?

Anyone got an answer? Thanks in advance.

Curiosity killed the cat.

Oh, and Pavel Bure used to do it all the time with Florida.

I think Jason Allison did it a few times under Pat Burns a few years back.

The goalie?

No, but seriously..I think I've seen Kovalchuk or Marc Savard out there pretty much an entire powerplay, but I may be wrong.

Anytime a team can win the faceoff and get sustained pressure in the offensive, then it can happen. I'm sure i've seen it from Detroit before.

Kovalchuk does it now, in Atlanta.

I've seen Zubov do that in nearly every game and on every PP chance they get. Schneider too during his LA days..

I thank you for the enlightenment...it just seems like it's something most teams don't do...most teams I know shift their power play lines, and you don't usually see someone stay out there the whole two minutes...I guess it's more prevalent than you would think.

Is the fact that they stay out there a compliment to their skills and ability or just that the coach can't come up with anyone else to go out and do a shift? I would like to think it's the former, myself.

I remember Lemieux playing the vast amount of a 4 minute PP a couple years ago, he probably would be doing it all the time now too if he wasn't injured.

Often times it's defenseman. If you have a good power play and are spending most of the time in the other teams end of the ice, the defenseman don't have to do a whole lot of skating. Therefore they can stay fresh for most of the 2 minutes.

I'm pretty sure Todd Bertuzzi double shifts sometimes on powerplays and plays the full thing..

Bertuzzi / Naslund / Morrison / Linden / Jovanovski
Bertuzzi / Sedin / Sedin / King / Salo

Interesting...thanks for all the input. I learn something new every day.

Is it better, do you think, to split the power play shifts or would you, if you were the coach, prefer to see players out there for the whole two? I mean, I guess if I had faith in the player's abilities I'd keep him out there...but I'm interested in your opinions.

Todd Bertuzzi does it a few times a year. Jaromir Jagr did it *all* the time in Pittsburgh.

Pretty sure I've seen Scott Neidermayer do it. Possibly only after an injury, ejection, or fighting major to one of the usual second-line powerplay pointmen.

Lubomir Visnovksy does it.

Jason Allison did it.

I remember a few seasons ago, Pittsburgh used a 5-forward PP. I'm probably wrong, but there may have been a few times when all 5 players stayed on for the full 2 minutes.

When they used the 5-forward PP, they had one of the best PP percentages in the league...somewhere upwards of 25%.

I believe the line combo was Lemieux-Jagr-Lang in the typical forward positions, and Kovalev-Straka at the points.

Just listing those names makes me yearn for Pittsburgh's better days.

I would guess it really depends on the player and the depth of the team. I would imagine that the majority of those who do play the entire two minutes are players who play the point.

Speaking from the Rangers perspective, I have no problem with Leetch playing the entire two. In fact, for a while, before Leetch was really back to full strength, Sather did not have him play the full two. And the powerplay was not the same.

The answer to who did it last night? Did Modry do it? That's not who I was thinking of, but as I've said, I keep learning new things by asking questions and getting opinions.

I think with the Wings, it's going to be done because the attrition rate is getting to be a burden...we lost Cheli for 3-4 weeks now, which we need like we need a frontal lobotomy. And I don't know what's going on with Whitney, he left the game last night too. It's getting to the point where those bodies who have managed to stay healthy are really going to have to pick it up that much more. We can't afford any more injuries, and I think Grand Rapids is getting tired of us raiding their pantry, if you know what I mean.

I think Whitney would often do that in Columbus, did he not?

One time this year (forget which game exactly) I think the Canucks played their top PP unit for the whole two minutes.

Name an elite scorer and you could probably bet that he's done it once or twice at least.

Actually, a lot of really good point men play the 2 full minutes. If they can always get the shot on net... it could really be an advantage to the team.
