…while it's way too easy to make jokes about how the Sedin twins will magically forget how to score on the power play immediately after this announcement, reader jmacwilli makes a great point about this in the comments secontion of my "Girardi"post. What happens if the Canucks power play, which dropped to 22nd last season, rebounds as a top 10 squad next season?
…the Lightning power play was a force under Sullivan, while the Rangers power play was just as dreadful under Renney, so if the Blueshirts extra man continues to struggle under AV while the Canucks have a resurgence, who the hell are we supposed to blame? And you almost can't say the players, because the only leftover from the Renney era is Lundqvist.
