I mean holy hell does it look bad. I just don't get it. We need to get that thing going or else we are screwed. All the good teams have a good potent PP. We bumble the damn puck all over the place and we seem to play better 5 on 5 than 5 on 4. I think Lavi needs to get them to practice that all day for a couple days straight. Anyone else feel similar?

You mean our 4th ranked NHL powerplay helping us create our 7th ranked NHL offense?

Yes, our top-5 PP is giving me a lot of concern.

I think we should trade Giroux for Halak.

Stats don't lie, but that doesn't mean this thread is totally without merit. Lately, there's been a few instances were the PP has looked abysmal. Hopefully that's back on track with the rest of the offense...

This thread makes a lot of sense. This PP seems like it can't score a big goal when they need it. I don't think the PP is something to REALLY worry about, but right now it's just in a slump.

PP's (similar to most things) oscillate a fair amount over the course of the season. We were 19th in February, and 3rd in January. 14th in December, 12th in November, and 5th in October.

Washington's ranks: 17th, 5th, 2nd, 1st, 8th.
Montreal: 25th, 10th, 1st, 4th, 14th.

I'd like to see JvR standing in front of the opposite goalie more often, but that's pretty much the only thing I'd change.

The Cavaliers aren't even listed on the top 30 and they have LeBron James for crying out loud!

Concerned? No. There have been games lately where I was astounded that we were still ranked so high on the PP though.

The PP is streaky, but when they get traffic and swarm like they are capable, the PP is a dangerous weapon. The one guy that won almost $500 in the McDonald's PP contest last game needs to never happen again, though.

I had to LOL@ this thread. I mean seriously? this is a top 5 PP in the league. No matter how good your PP is, you are going to have stretches through out the season where you will struggle on the PP for whatever reason. It happens, this is still a very good PP. Things havent clicked well for the last half dozen games or so. It happens. relax.
Of course if we go 3-6 on the PP every game, people would ***** that the other 3 PPs per game looked like ****.

The PP is fine, they are going thru a rough stretch. It happens to everyone.
