    On the PP - Why do they break up the Berg line?

    Can someone help me understand why they put Seguin on the 2nd PP line and don't just keep him with Bergeron and Marchand. I just don't see how Peverely is a better choice on that line.

    Good question, given how bad their PP is and how good that line is they probably should just leave them together

    I've been saying this for weeks! Keep the two top units as they are - The Bergeron line has greart chemistry, the Krejci line needs some.

    Nothing like the man-advantage to get a line's confidence back and help certain guys find their hands again...

    Krejci Bergeron Seguin should be the first line PP. when the PP was struggling last year Julien used this forward combination for what seemed like just a few games and it was very successful but never used again. go figure, the three best forwards.

    Whats up!

    In response to ipotnyc's comment:

    Becuase Ward is the genius behind the "defensive-minded PP" strategy = the PP should serve as a means to prevent the other team from scoring. 



    LOL
    Geoff Ward wouldn't even be in this position without his mentor CJ.
    Ward was - at best - a mediocre AHL coach, and he couldn't even keep his coaching jobs overseas. Enter Claude Julien, his old buddy from their Hamilton Bulldogs days - and suddenly Geoff Who? gets to run the power play of an Original Six franchise, with unsurprisingly bad results.

    Just seems like they want Seguin on the left side to line up his powerful shot, I get that part but the chemistry of that line is too good to break it up.

    Is the reason - putting Seguin on the left side?

    Yes, the chemistry can't be taught. 'Drawing up' a powerplay strategy is trumped by three guys with chemistry, every time. Keep rolling your 4 lines Claude.

     

    Forget 'Powerplay strategy' (except the drawing up of face-off tactics, which is the closest hockey can come to a 'set play'.) To restate the premise:  "Us 5 guys against their 4 guys? I think we can figure it out."
