take AJ off the point on the power play. Merrill, Trouba, Bennett, Moffie, that's 4 D-men with good shots to man the point on 2 PP units. AJ would be more valuable handling the puck to make space and create plays down low. Plus, with AJ on the point, we've had to play 1 or 2 forwards on the PP who aren't very threatening offensively.

I'll ask Red about that. BTW, appointment is Wed. for Merrill. We should have an update on him after that.

I realize that you want puck-handling skills at the point on the PP, but (no disrespect to anyone), due to AJ playing the point, the forwards we put out on the 2d PP unit due just aren't threatening. Would rather have seen Clare, Serville or Chiasson as the 4th point man on the 2 PP units.
