Powerplay?

Recommended Posts

After last years problems on the "PP" should the Canes Hire a New "coach" or "specialist" whatever you want to call him to bring some new life into the" PP"?I'm not saying to get rid of anyone, just maybe bring in someone new just for this reason.

There was talk during the end of season interviews about doing just that, not sure if it was JR that mentioned it or John Forslund.

Maybe it was Red Storm said it that you're thinking of... :rolleyes: ...or, pehaps not, anyway I posted this awhile back and still agree it may be a good idea:

I think an off-season assessment needs to be done by the coaching staff on where they failed. The Power Play showed up in the playoffs last year, but really was only average for much of last season; stunk this year. Perhaps bringing in an assistant coach just for power play tactics should be pursued (Football seems to have an assistant or specialist coach for everything, so why not?)

No, what i heard definitely came from the organization.

Well whomever said it, i sure hope the right people were listening.With just a couple more percentage points on the pp last yr. we would have been in much better shape.I hope whoever comes in or a change in tactics,, put someone out front of the crease!!

well isn't McCarthy (sp?) leaving? i know he's got the capability of being a head coach and someone (forslund?) said that he wanted the chance to be a head coach and we promoted Greg Stefan to assistant coah/goalie coach..

I agree, Power Play was a breaker last season in several games. PP goals could have change the complexion of a number of games.

Hear! Hear! PP and Shootouts were so dismal they became painiful to watch. With a 50% success rate on shootouts and picking up just a couple of close games with a PP here and there and we could have coasted in the playoffs!
