I miss our PP

In the last 5 years , I think we had the 1st powerplay in the league 3 times.Powerplays are always one of the funniest moment in a hockey game because you can see your best player racking up the point and your team scoring , and skilled players with more space to maneuver.Souray , Markov , Streit , Kovalev...You just knew they would score , and now , entering the zone is a pain in the ass , it is by far the most frustrating part of our new core.I'm not trying to accomplish anything with this thread , maybe we can talk about our joke of a PP.Hopefully Wisnewski can turn that around but I have my doubt.

The team was 2nd in PPs last year with pretty much the same core.

There's nothing wrong with the Habs' PP; the reason you miss the PP is that you don't see it much.

For a team that carries the play at even strength, the Habs have a bizarre (and to me, inexplicable) inability to draw penalties. They have had among the fewest PPs in the league -- to go with the most PKs -- and this, despite the fact that they dominate possession and chances more often than not.

(Those people who believe in a ref conspiracy should look at these stats, they'd have a lot of ammunition.)

We need us some Markov.

Imagine Markov made it back before the end of the season (I know it won't happen) and we had Markov and Wiz together? That would be sweet.

Markov and Bergeron made a great deal of difference though. Let's see if Wiz can bring the same kind of presence now.

remember last year's PP when it was worse than this year's and we still finished top 2? by the end of the season, we always end up first because we've always made a move if we couldn't solve it with our own streits and sourays. (schneider, mab...) and now the wiz

Pretty much the same core? The core was Markov and Bergeron.Where are they now?

Nothing to do with trading everyone or crapping on them, you said it's the same core and it isn't the same at all, without Bergeron last year we wouldn't have been that good and this year so far with no Markov and no replacement of Bergeron with that big shot we previously had with him, we aren't that dangerous. Nothing to do with what you're thinking, hopefully Wiz's big shot will turn things around the rest of the way

Wait, what? We don't carry the play. Also, we don't draw penalties because instead of going to the net with the puck, we allow the opposing D to push the play to the perimeter. Our top 2 lines don't really cycle that much and we don't really have much sustained pressure in the offensive zone.

This is why I like the Pouillot, Eller, Darche line....3 bigger guys who seem to do a good job of sustaining pressure.

Weren't you also the guy who said that Stamkos would only get about 35 goals, 60 goals being an absurd prediction, and that it was laughable to suggest that he has a higher shooting percentage than Ovechkin or Kovalchuk?

Stamkos is currently 1st in shooting %, btw.

The PP is going to come back alive now that the Wiz is on it . Be is a better MAB that is WAY better on defense and has the shot we needed from MAB . Oh and he can play more minutes.
