The woeful PP is only 50% on Shaw. The players' execution is among some of the worst I have seen.

Maybe we can have a PP coach that understands how to enter the zone on the PP.. Dump and chase is not successful.. Drive and drop pass is

Sometimes dump and chase is all that's available. It's ultimately the players that make a power play good or bad.

Yeah, because the only thing holding back our awesome powerplay was the coach. Sure.

It's much easier to blame the coach than the absolute abysmal performance of the players.

That being said, I'd have to think long and hard to remember a power play that was more pathetic than the Devils' after Kovy went down.

Would love to see Boucher on the bench behind Kovalchuk.

Boucher and Lemaire are buddies, I wouldn't put that out of the realm of possibility.  I do think DeBoer wants to go back to the Oates power play though.

It was pretty bad, but without Kovy, we had no one who could seem threatening with a shot from the outside.

Us Devils fans are pretty quick to jump on our PP though, it's usually average at best, but Oates did a better job than people thought and Shaw didn't have much to work with. His PP strategy may have worked in SJS, but they got Burns to fire bombs and Boyle is still decent. We don't have much as far as guys who can shoot rockets from the point, it's just Kovy.

It's time for you guys to look in the mirror, it's not the system, it's the players! Oates had a great PP in Washington and ran virtually the same thing he did with us.

I wish PDB would engineer the power play, then bring someone in to run it. And on a side note, we really can't keep coaches around here
