Second Power Play Unit


Hectic

Recommended Posts

It goes without saying our second power play unit is pretty awful. However, I decided to start a topic about it, defeating the purpose of the saying "ït goes without saying."

What would your first and second power play units be?

My opinion:

1st

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian

Garrison-Edler

2nd

Burrows-Kesler-Higgins

Bieksa-Hamhuis

rather have garrison teamed up with bieksa on the first unit. as much as people rag on kb3, he can be great at the right times. edler just has one play and thats that sdafsefj drop pass we see every time he's out there. doesn't bother leading the rush, instead opts to drop it back and leaving the team open for a short handed break out-- like, how many times have we seen that. kb3 at least gets down and dirty and jumps up

2nd PP unit will get miles better when Schroeder gets back.

The 2nd PP unit needs a true center who can pass to control the play once in the zone. As it currently stands, nobody on the second unit can control the puck along the half boards and distribute the puck to someone more than 5 feet away.

Sedin-Sedin-Santorelli

Garrison-Bieksa

Burrows-Kesler-Hansen (Higgy until Burr comes back)

Edler-Hamhuis (corrado instead of hamhuis if in line-up)

* Each pp needs one scary shooter from pt to spread out the defensive coverage

* Kassian isn't on here until he learns his role and shows some heart; if/or when he does then put him In for Hansen or Santorelli if either pp isn't getting it done or Torts place a hunch

Didn't Kesler used to get a lot of goals on the half wall with his one timers like OV? Seems like he's just being used in front of the net now. I think Kassian should be there and Kes should run the 2nd unit.

When everyone is back.

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian

Bieksa-Garrison

Kesler-Schroeder-Burrows/Santorelli

Edler-Weber/Hamhuis

Oh ya and Schroeder would work on 2nd pp too. He can replace Hansen. Kesler and burrows can b shooters and Schroeder can be playmaker. That's where he can shine. He's such a smart player, and if he can step up and play at this level than I think he can make burr and kes better players, and have teams worried a bit more about our 2nd unit too

Once everyone is healthy

PP1

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Kesler - Garrison

PP2

Higgins/Hansen - Schroeder - Kassian

Hamhuis - Edler

First and second PP units = shooter, playmaker, net presence, with at least one cannon on each point.
