    What would your ideally PP unit would be if you want it to be highly productive. I think PP production plays a huge part in making the playoffs and even winning a series or two.

    I would certainly go with this..

    Hemsly - Spezza - Ryan (he can also stand in front of the net, if need be)

    Turris - Karlsson


    PP 2 -

    MacArthur - Zibenajad - Hoffman or Michalek (he can also stand in front of the net, if need be)

    Ceci - Wiercoch/Hoffman

    Well, if it was at the beginning of the season I would give one answer, since we do not know who will be back next season it is a toss up.

    Turris & Spezza need to be on different lines, to spread out the wealth.


    MacArthur-Turris-Ryan

    Zibanejad-Karlsson


    Hemsky-Spezza-Stone/Hoffman/Michalek

    Karlsson-Ceci (Wiercioch takes over if Karlsson doesn't play the whole 2 minutes).




    No ****ing Phillips.

    I like these except with MacArthur and Ryan on their off wings of course. Might switch Ceci for Wiercioch, regardless of what you think of his even strength play you've gotta admit he's been great on the PP and he should only improve.

    Ryan - Stone - Spezza
    Zibanejad - Karlsson

    Karlsson playing QB on the point. Spezza to his right, Zibanejad to his left. Teams will learn (the hard way) to respect Zibanejad's one-timer, opening up room for Spezza to do his 'curl-and-shoot' move (see 2:12, 8:13, 11:48 of this video). Meanwhile, Ryan is playing low-man in the corner, looking to find holes in coverage for a one-timed shot, and Stone is screening the goalie in front of the net. With a good coach that's a deadly powerplay.

    Still have enough skilled players to field a second PP unit of:

    MacArthur - Turris - Hemsky
    Ceci/Wiercioch - Karlsson

    There's no reason with the skill we have on our roster to have a mediocre powerplay. Should be top 5/10 in the league every season.

    What sucks is that you are all wrong because you all forgot to put in Neil in any possible PP unit. You just know MacLean would f***ing send him there

    Just an awful powerplay. Karlsson on the point with another forward clearly does not work.
