I would love to see them separate Mcnugedraivid on the PP.

McDavid-Dri-Chaission-Pearsson-??

Nuge-Neal-Gags-Klef-Karhia-??

Have Dri one left one time shot on PP1 and Neal the same spot PP2.

Maybe we can actually have 2 PP that can compete w each other. Pipe dream maybe but I think thats enough tallent to make it work if everyone moves and passes the puck quicker. I prefer McDavid passing and Dri 0ne timing because when Dri gets the puck he slows the PP down to a stand still.


Interesting to know - there's been a strong move away from two competing powerplays across the league with an emphasis on loading up PP1, and an increasing tilt from one minute for each unit to a longer first shift and only 30-45 seconds for the second unit - if that.

It does make some sense. You shouldn't get as tired on the powerplay, because you're (hopefully) not skating end to end. Your best players, assuming they have the gas, give you the best chance to score, so why not load them up!

Healthy, I think Klefbom is the best Left-shooting defenceman option for the PP. If he sticks (and as much as the Oilers have talked about over-ripening, I still think there's a chance he does), Bouchard might get a push on the top PP unit as a big right shot.

It does make sense if you are going with Nuge and Klefbom/Nurse on the top unit that you'd flip sides and run it off the other side-boards opening up a host of one-timer options (although making it a little tougher on your side-board guy (McDavid) and down-low player (Draisaitl).

I have a hard time thinking they'll split up the big three on the PP simply because they just don't have enough decent threats. This is a team that gave Colby Cave powerplay time at points this year. They don't have enough real options that you ever want some of those guys out on a regular PP shift.



"This team needs an enema!"
