What does your top power play unit look like? Do you have 2 defencemen at the point or do you put a forward back there? Would you seperate Sid and Geno.

Iggy in his office
Geno in his office
Neal and Sid roaming
Martin passing to whomever is open

Morrow Dupuis Kunitz Letang Jussi for 2nd

On the super super off chance they make 2 units out of sid and geno....

Sid Kunitz Martin Iggy Duper
Geno Neal Morrow Jussi Letang (this line would be prone to do something stupid so having Letang's speed would be important)

I really liked what I saw on the PP last night. Martin or Letang at the top of the umbrella with Iginla to the left and Neal to the right. One timer city. Put Malkin down low on the right half wall, setting things up from just north of the end line, with Kunitz net front. It takes Geno out of a shooting position, but so be it, his shoulder limits that effectiveness anyway.

If you do that, I'd put Martin on both units in the same role. On the other PP, put Letang (Right Handed) in Iginla's place, and Sid in Neal's. Morrow net front and Jokinen down low/rover. This becomes more of a traditional PP with Sid moving up and down the half wall, but can shift into the same configuration as the first.

My only issue with this PP is it uses Martin on both units, who is the least dynamic player of the group. However, with this much talent, I like him as a calm, collected distributor to set things up and let the rest do their thing. The other option is to use Letang at the top of the Geno PP and insert Bennett as the RHS on the second PP. I don't really like Bennett's one timer though so it's not ideal. Sutter might even be a better pick there.

I prefer Martin over Letang. Assuming his wrist is healed enough for him to shoot.

This, but with Letang as the point man. With only 1 dman in that lineup; he gives you the best recovery on PK rushes, doesn't have to worry about shooting (with Iginla/Neal lined up on each side), has been good at getting the puck into the zone for PP setup and is the best at keeping the puck in the zone patrolling the blue line. Plus, I'd be trying to get Malkin back to his one timers as soon as possible.

Sid behind the net, Neal high slot, Iginla left half boards and Malkin right half boards, Tanger top of the umbrella.

Good job on actually limiting to only 3 options. That also ruined the poll for me.
