I agree. In my time coaching and playing, there was ALWAYS a big guy (or at least a mock big guy) to play in front on the PP. But I applaud MT for doing something different. I guess it doesn't hurt to have Geno blasting from the point, Sid controlling the right side, Goligoski covering the open area at point, Sykora lurking in the slot, and Satan waiting for the cross ice passes and clean up around the net. Gives the defense a little more to think about... and it's working.
