Quote from: hobarth on January 06, 2023, 02:08:39 PMBeyond how bad the Leafs can look defensively I don't get how ineffective TO's PP can be, those 5 forwards should at least be able to generate a shot every PP per game?

Said it a million times they pass it around way too often. Always looking for that pretty goal it seems instead of keeping it simple. That's on the coaches to. Either get on them to shoot more or change it up and play the 2nd unit more. Team comes before egos sorry.

I'm a little more concerned about how stationary the PP continually looks. There's nothing wrong with passing and looking for open/quality chances but when they aren't moving it's pretty much a fruitless plan of attack. Granted we're talking about a 9th overall unit, so it's not like they have been awful, but that's the main issue I see when I watch them out there. Slow, stationary and predictable.

Yep.  This happens every year, and gets worse in the playoffs.  Just baffling that they can't attack the net more effectively.
