MNSOTA's pregamer makes me think about the PP. At first I was pretty calm about it. They'll get it going better, I thought. But it isn't happening. Something's got to be done! Change the personnel on the lines or change McLean (is he the responsible coach?) or change Evason. We've been good enough otherwise but the PP is a disgrace. We've got mobile d-men, Kaprizov, Fiala, a suddenly working Zuccarello and Greenway that is so big that even Pekka Rinne would be screened by him. It's not possible to not score with that line-up! The Wild's PP is like a bee flying, it is not physically possible that a bee can fly, yet it flies, and it is not possible for these guys not to score at least now and then, and yet they don't. It needs to change right now. I'm so fed up with it 🤯

Evason claims people will play by how they perform. The PP hasn't improved so it's needs to be changed and we all know 1 spot where it should start.
I'd rather have Kaprizov circling the O-zone the entire time looking for anyone open than the current Umbrella format. 
At least that would make the opposing team move and create more opportunities.
No Hartman again?? :(

Get to finally see a game on the big TV and not my PC. 😎
