    Florida will be rolling for the first time ( ?? I think?) a full PP forward unit Barkov-Dadonov-Huberdeau-Hoffman-Trochek.

    Will it be the new trend this year?

    I know that having a dman on the PP is kinda the security factor but wonder what the use to always have one?

    Wonder how the second unit will looks like, I always thought that balanced PP unit was the key for me.

    Doesn't Tampa do this already? Looks to be a good strategy.

    Why even dress Keith Yandle if you're not even gonna put him on the PP?

    Having Barkov out there is basically like having a dman there anyways

    Tampa did that during the Boucher era toward the end. It wasn't super effective. Generally I think Dmen are more accustomed to the QB-duties.

    He's not better on the pp than any of the 5 forwards they're using.

    thats funny because he had 1 less point on the powerplay than huberdeau last year and more points than barkov while being a dman who can defend on any shorthanded breakout

    its going to bite them in the ass having a forward back there over yandle, its a different kind of defending than what forwards are used to and grabners, karlssons, armias and watsons are going to take advantage of that

    To prevent scaring people with a naked Keith Yandle.

    So about that...

    0/5 + allowed SHG (and gave up other chances).

    Lemaire's 5 defenseman PP with the Wild puts it to shame. So much easier to trap when the other team only has 4 players on the ice.

    Barkov is QB in this set up.
    Might've been better results tonight but for Vasilevskii.
    Still not sure why you'd throw this unit out in the third with a one goal lead, though....
    SHG by TB tied the game....whoops. Crazy lucky bounce led to the goal, but still....
