When Kesler and Booth get back, the powerplay will come back to orginal form.

1st Powerplay Unit Will stay the same because its ran through the sedins, but Kassian should be in front of the net like Kesler did and garrison or edler need to be switched to the 2nd PP

2nd Unit

Burrows Raymond Higgins
Edler/Garrison Bieska

Set up Umbrella like set up, so we can get some onetimers with burrows in front.

Somebody needs to be doing what kesler did, in front of the net or the Canucks wont be having any success untill Kesler comes back.

PP is too casual and our 2nd unit runs around too much in the offensive zone.

I agree, we need Kesler. But it'll never get better unless our d-men can't hit the net.

The pp hasn't looked dangerous at all this year. Should try Luongo at the Point with Schneider. Maybe they can hit the net.

I dont even care. I just really hope Ballard gets a legit chance sometime soon. He'd be really good on the PP.

It should be:

Hamhuis - Edler

Ballard - Garrison

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

bull, Canucks PP has actually been the best in the league for a couple of years. We had Ehrhoff in 2011 and we still maintained that effective PP with Salo being healthy most of last season. Ever since Newell Brown joined our team's coaching staff, our PP had been pretty good. It seems some people in this board make up crap to hear themselves talk. Whats next? we have missed the playoffs for a few years now? :picard:

Garrison just needs to develop chemistry with the Sedins. You think Salo developed that overnight?

The Sedins are very dynamic on the powerplay. It takes time to learn where to be with them. It has to become instinctual.

The Sedins are typically slow out of the gate, and so is the team. It will start clicking soon enough.

What Garrison ACTUALLY needs to do is stay in bloody position and shoot the puck instead of wandering around like a chicken with his head chopped off. The Canucks have slinked through far to few games this season for there to have been as many errant passes as I've seen, all as a result of stupid Garrison and stupid Edler not staying in position at the blueline. Move in to pinch, and nothing else. This team is not in the groove necessary to be playing "creatively" at this point in time.

Advocating simplicity falls on the coaches hands. Unfortunately, the coaches hands fall short, so there's not much beyond that to say until this team pulls its socks up and plays a solid, simple, 60 minute game. The CLOSEST we've been to seeing a 60 minute game (still not that close...) this season was against Anaheim, and we took them to the cleaners!

Was that so FREAKIN hard?

"... nah, I'd rather ice the puck a hundred times and sit on a 1 goal lead with my thumb up me arse for a full period... it's easier..."

Umm what?

1st, then 4th best powerplay. Not bad really.

We're missing some key personnel (Kesler) and Garrison with the big bomb hasn't been able to hit the net. It'll start clicking.

I like how Schroeder and Raymond are able to skate around guys and keep the puck in the o zone on the second pp unit but... No one is shooting.

I'm really impressed by Schroeder, but the guy needs to shoot, he has a killer wrister.
