At least Neal is a bright spot on the PP.

Pretty much the only bright spot.

Yeah ..... the bright spot that gets buried on the 2nd unit.

He should be playing more minutes than every forward except Ribeiro on the PP. He leads the team in PPG with limited time. How about someone actually put him out there with a decent group (Modano and Morrison ) getting decent time.

The PP is terrible, and you can blame the injuries. You can't forgive going with the same guys over and over without shaking it up.

It's what happens when a team runs the umbrella it's so easy to clear the zone and factor in Robidas on the first unit which leads to failure.

I don't understand why we went to the umbrella instead of sticking with a wing overload. We sued to be dominant with those backdoor passes. You have to get the puck to the point and hope to god somebody screens the goalie, if it doesn't work send it back and try again. This "let's be fancy ****" is getting old and needs to stop. Oh and WTF Robidas can't even hit the net so why not try somebody like IDK our best D pair we have right now, Grossman and Fistric. At least they show heart and *** play.

The only time the Umbrella is effective is when a team's powerplay actually exists. So yeah the Stars need to just stick to the overload it follows the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) system. Even the 1-3-1 would work better.

Expecting the PP to function without its vital personnel is pointless.

But I can also understand the reluctance to change formations for temporary injuries.

Honestly at this point I think the Stars' best bet is to simply try scoring off the rush. Ribeiro or Neal stickhandling past the other team's entire defense seems as likely to work as the umbrella or anything else.

Richards will at least make it possible to run an average NHL PP so relief is not too far off.

They would be better off skating it in until they got to the first penalty killer and taking a shot, because at least then they took a shot. However that's not how it works in real life unless you're Ovechkin.
