Because it's way better to have the 5 best guys on your team take a 2 min shift and then have a them exhausted and 83% likely to have accomplished nothing. Than to have a good flow with everyone ready to respond to whatever develops after the power play. Even Bowman with Lemieux didn't have him taking 2 min shift. Most of our guys stay out there the full 2 minutes.
misquoted! I didnt write that! Board police.
But now that you brought it up, my contention for years is that the Pens should train Malkin to be right handed. Each of those guys on the half boards with Neal or Kunitz down low. Book it goal every time, Shero made a glaring error by drafting two left handed super stars after Patrick had already drafted Staal. Fire him.
