I'd say put Vis where Horc's at in BBO's setup. He gets his right side and Souray commands the entire point. Vis can always just skate in and wire one anyways

I love this move. Now we just need to sort out the Dmen. Our pp might be top 10.

If our PP isn't in the top ten then we are severely screwed. With the specialist talent that we have, it should be the primary area of the game that we dominate. For it to be a successful season, we need to be a top 6 PP.

Step 5) Success
Umbrella won't work in the NHL on a 5 on 4... it's too easy to defend because you typically don't have enough players in dangerous scoring areas to prevent the defence from cheating on their coverage.

Now, you can work a cycle around to set up a play or two out of the umbrella, but other than that it's too easy to defend.

It works great on the 5 on 3 though.

We have better five v. five players this year too. Cole is looking like one of them. Moreau, Vis, full year of Pisani, full year of Horcoff (hopefully), kids should improve a bit and Pouliot is already not bad. I think we will do better at EV this year (hard to do worse, right?)

The difference with this team is we have the best shooting powerplay blueline in hockey. Souray and Visnovsky, especially the former, have proven that they are in dangerous scoring areas wherever they are in the offensive zone.

Agreed. I like Cogs, just not on the PP. On the rush he looks OK, but once they set up in the zone, he always looks a little lost, seems to crowd Gagner on the side boards.

I'd like to see

Gagner-Penner-Hemmer
Souray-Vis

Nilsson-Horc-Cole
Grebs-Gilby
