This is how we fix the powerplay:

1) Take Burrows off the first unit. He's good with the Sedins in cycling the puck and is great 5-on-5, but isn't our best man in front of the net. Our PP has been brutal the entire time he's been on it and needs to go. Our best crease presence is Hansen but Booth, Higgins and Kassian are all better at screening than Burrows. Burrows is far too easy to handle - simply just isn't big enough.

2) Replace Hamhuis with Garrison. Garrison has to be the only defenceman who's getting shots through traffic, and he's our biggest shot. He proved his worth in his limited time on the second unit, while Hamhuis couldn't get anything on net, either could Bieksa.

3) Work the point shot. Henrik and Daniel should be soley focused on setting up Edler or Garrison for a one timer. Both are left handed, so with Henrik controlling on the left half-boards he can set up the LD and the LD can set up the RD for a one time slapshot. Daniel hovering in the slot for a big rebound and the net presence looking for a deflection or rebound.

0 for 33 is unacceptable.

As bad as the drop pass is, it isn't our biggest problem. We rarely set up the powerplay, but even when we do we're not generating enough shots or chances. That all comes from work down low to draw defenders in, then working it back to the point for a slapshot with all the defenders collapsed.

Right now we're not setting this up well at all, and PKers never need to collapse.

His name is Jason Garrison, use him.

If he's not out there on a 5-on-3, you should be insta-fired. No excuse for NHL coaches to not make such an easy, obvious move.

I gave him full marks for engineering the NHLs best PP two years ago but the rest of the NHL has now figured out how to stop it

He's actually just like AV. Both guys are great at implementing a general overall gameplan/strategy.

*However* most opposition teams will adapt and/or make changes to that. Brown's & AV's problem is that - they *STILL* continue as if everything (eg., opposition) stays constant. That's the problem.

Stubborness to the point of lunacy.

No, put Garrison on and we won't even make it into their zone. I am so sick of this guy's giveaways when trying to make a play out of our zone! He's got at least 20 feet of open ice to aim at and he manages to hit an opposing player every time. Just watch: when Garrison has the puck behind our net, it does not make it out.
Oh, to have Ehrhoff back..

Watched the last game sitting beside an old man. "SHOOT...SHOOT THE DAMN PUCK!!" Was all he was yelling when the Canucks were on the PP. He was right. Too bad the Canucks couldn't hear him or chose to ignore him.

You can fix it as soon as you fire Bowness. He's had 2 years to fix it and it's still disgusting.

They legit need to fire Newell Brown. He is in charge of the PP and this is honestly unacceptable with the talent our top PP line possesses. The effectiveness of the PP lies on his shoulders. If a team went 0-35 as a record to start a season, the coach would be fired. Don't get me wrong, he had his glory... but he really needs to think of something else. You'd think that he would be very comfortable with the players at this stage in the game.

I was honestly expecting a suggestion that using Luongo over Schneider would fix it.

But in all seriousness, this team just doesn't seem to want to get into the dirty areas on the PP enough. Our point men don't move the puck back and forth enough, I noticed Edler hogging the puck big time tonight. If they passed back and forth, and got some hard, low shots on net, it'd produce rebounds. Then we'd just need people in the dirty areas to whack it home. That's pretty much what we did when our PP worked in years past, but I guess with no Kesler we're struggling to get someone with that 'net presence' to get it done.

The drop pass isn't the problem. Their set up is. The Canucks never "close" in the box. They're always so spread out on the man advantage. When you're that spread out you need to be looking for cross-seam one-timers, which no one wants to do.

They're still missing their best powerplay presence in Kesler. He's a shooter and a better net presence than Burrows.

They need a major shake-up. Put Garrison back on for some heavier shots. Take more shots form the half-wall. And if they're going to use this modified umbrella where Henrik floats around the slot, he needs to be sliding into the soft spots between the defense and forwards for one-timers. If he doesn't want to do this, someone else needs to.

At this point, they're probably just over-thinking it too. No confidence and it just gets worse.
