It isn't just about talent.
The difference is, the Flyers powerplay has had success with the same personnel. It hasn't been awful all season, either.

In the past, the Flyers relied on the powerplay to get back into games. This year, they've been so strong at even strength that they haven't shown the same urgency as in the past. I believe we'll see that urgency come back when the games mean the most.

Not exactly the same personnel. First full season with Laviolette and a few new guys and emerging guys (Leino, Zherdev, JVR, Meszaros, Versteeg, etc.) to put in contention for PP time.

I am very open to the possibility that the PP will come to life in the playoffs though. Don't have faith in that happening in the remainder of the regular season though.

At what point do we take a long hard look and say maybe we have the wrong players on it and it's time to switch it up?
It's essentially the same personnel that had the 3rd best powerplay over the course of last year's regular season.

Missed most of the first period, but turned on the radio when they scored the first goal.

Like I said. Kennedy was the best player in the 1st for the Pens, and he scores a goal right away in the 2nd...

Lavi doesn't run the powerplay, but if you're inferring that his even strength system is affecting the powerplay, I don't buy it.

The top 7 powerplay time on ice leaders were on the team last year. The only one in the top ten that wasn't is Mez.

The worst penalties always result in goals against, it seems.

I think we'll need to play better than we did in the first period to win this game.

Agreed, we're getting no help from the refs either.

Good job Versteeg. I love when a player draws a penalty at the end of his shift. Something that rarely happens.

Wow... that Pens fan they showed at the end there. I'm sure she doesn't even know who Lemieux is.

Why do we even care that we have a PP? It's not like we're gonna score.
