44 Duncan Posted October 20, 2017 Share Posted October 20, 2017 Six games into this early season it appears the Canucks power play needs some help big time. Thomas Vanek looks like he will be the best option as the net front presence and has a few goals. It seems we are missing that big one time shot or we are not using the players that we have the right way to give them the best opportunity to get shots off. This thread is to discuss the problem and any possible solutions to see what we can come up with. I personally would like to see Brock play his off side and the team focus on getting him the puck. He didn't score tonight but he did some damage with the power of his shot. That said he played his normal side for most of the power plays making it very hard for the one timer. He also was the first guy off the ice every power play. All the great teams in the NHL have that player with the deadly one timer Stamos, McDavid, Kane, Tavares, OV, Matthews etc... Now we don't have that high end top line player but we do have a kid with a shot like that. Unfortunately it appears the Sedins should be the 3rd power play option now. I think maybe playing Vanek in front of the net, Boeser on his off side by the face off circle, Bo at the other face off circle and Stecher and Granlund on the points would be a great look and i don't think they have tried it yet.
