I really hate our PP. I am too the point where I literally cant stand when the B's go on the PP. For one, Recchi on the blue line during a PP is a joke. I just cringe when I see him out there. He has no one timer and cant keep the puck in the zone half the time. Along with that, there is no creativity, not much movement. Just terrible....Sorry to be so negative, because I usually cant stand the negativity on this sight, but the PP is just awful. Teams are not scared at all of the B's PP. They dont respect it.

They don't have one.
This is the major issue. They don't draw enough penalties and they don't have a top rated PP unit.
Add a scoring winger and an Off D Man and this changes.

Maybe Kelly can take Recchi's place at point.....lol. Just kidding. This is a real problem. Remember that special teams are especially important in the playoffs. I am certain PC is shopping for a true PP pointman. His success in doing so will reveal just how capable he really is.
