    Who are the top shooters on their team's PP and how would you rank them in comparison to other? Basically someone that will typically be the triggerman and the primary focus on getting the goals? ie. Ovechkin is clearly the triggerman in WSH.

    No one in Tampa, Stamkos and Kucherov prefer passing it back and forth for the entire two minutes

    Giroux and Ghost are basically the only guys allowed to shoot on the Flyers PP. Giroux from Ovechkins spot but a little farther back closer to the boards and Ghost a the top of the umbrella.

    Laine in Winnipeg. Similar to Ovi.

    It’s fair to say Oshie is a trigger man on the Caps too. The whole point of their set up is that there are two players in very dangerous areas.
    Ovechkin in the Ovi spot, and you have Oshie in the slot right in front of the net.

    Both of them just wait there for a pass and the only way to stop one is to leave the other open.
    That same spot made Brouwer a 30 goal scorer.

    3rd option is Carlson at the top of the point. The PP really came alive though when Kuzy started sniping from the half wall.

    When did they start allowing triggermen on the PP? Asking for the Oilers, who are not aware of this possibility.

    Ducks really haven't had a top-notch gunner on the PP since Selanne retired.

    Jets' main guy is Laine in the Ovechkin spot
    2nd is Scheifele in the slot
    3rd is Byfuglien with slappers from the point

    Wheeler feeds all these guys

    I would include him BUT for whatever reason the Islanders seem fit to hide that shot on the second unit

    I thought Tampa puts Kuch in the "Ovi" spot just on the opposite side. Just remembering from last year where he had a hattrick on the PP

    It’s unfair to put him on the 1st unit
