Vitale is at 3 seconds/game on the PK.
That's one coaching decision that I just don't get....especially in light of how bad they have been at times this year.
It's exactly what I've been saying! The PK could improve just by making better personnel decisions. Glass and Adams should not be taking draws. Heck I'm unsure if Glass should even see the PK. Vitale has a great face off % and could be very useful there, yet the guy can barely crack the lineup most nights.
I don't understand how guys don't get demoted from the PK when its struggled as it has. We just keep trotting the same guys out there night after night. It's not working, why not let Vitale take draws like Crosby does at least? It's a baby step, but it's an attempt to get better.
