Looks just like Barzal and Leddy Saturday night. I was watching it cracking up thinking how many times can these guys pass back and forth to each other? The panthers were just standing there motionless watching it dumbfounded 😂

Pre-practice power play session for #Isles featured two new groups.

One was Leddy-Pulock-Eberle-Bailey-Lee.

Other was Boychuk-Clutterbuck-Ladd-Nelson-Barzal.



Barzal is on the second unit

7 should give Trotz a call that guy doesn’t know what he’s doing😂

All kidding aside I see nothing wrong with it minus I hate watching Clutterbuck out there. It causes me physical pain.

Nelson, Barzal, and Boychuk are pretty much shorthanded 4-on-3

That probably speaks to the need for more top-six talent more than anything.

Rangers aren't much better. I get you have to pass quickly on the PP and hopefully get either an open shot on the point or a 2 on 1 down low, or however you want to set it up, but its great when two people play catch and the other team doesn't have to do a damn thing. I've seen it enough with the Rangers. Although they are getting a little better this year with trying to set up Zib or someone else for a onetimer.

Look at the rest of that line. Barzal will be the only one able to get the puck into the offensive zone. Its going to be short handed breakaways galore if they turn the puck over near the blue line.

Funny thing about hockey... you actually need to shoot the effing puck to score. Passing the puck around like the Hoosiers of Hockey doesn't make a ton of sense. get the puck through to the net and jam in the rebound. ... frustrating.

I kind of like the idea of putting Barzal with all shoot-first players...Boychuk, Ladd, Nelson, and Clutterbuck don't pass up too many shots. As long as Barzal has the puck on his stick and is circling the offensive zone, he can probably make some things happen with those shooting options. It's when Barzal doesn't have the puck that I wonder how much pressure those other guys will be able to keep up.

But, the only other real option to replace any of those guys is Beau, and he's not getting it done right now.

Boychuk should never be the only d-man on the ice. While I like much of his game, speed is not one of his attributes. That PP unit could lead the NHL in giving up shorties.

Agree on the need for more top 6 talent which is why I would rather call up Ho Sang. He can play on PP2 for zone entries. Then Barzal can return to PP1. Clutterbuck does not belong on either PP.

I don't think he has a good game most nights, so you don't have to try too hard to convince me

Speaking of BPT, Bellows has been on a goal-scoring tear lately. Scored again the other day and is now up to 6g.

Toews in 5th place for defenseman scoring in the AHL, right behind former Islander-greats TJ Brennan and Matt Donovan.
