Tocchet announced earlier this week how he planned on replacing the void left from Jason King's departure. In an interview he gave to Sportsnet, Tocchet revealed that he'd have a consortium of three staff member to run the power play alongside the players' running their own ideas:

''Sergei Gonchar and the twins (Daniel and Henrik Sedin), and I'll take a big chunk of it for now, and then we'll go from there. I'll be honest with you, I'm going to really rely on that core group of guys on the powerplay to come up with ideas.''

Invited on Sekeres and Price, the former Canuck Frank Corrado, who's seen his fair share of power plays, simply didn't have it and didn't think this was a strategy that could work out.

"brilliant minds...too many cooks in the kitchen...five differing opinions...they want to be coached...direct messaging"




The Canucks' power play's worked great with J.T. Miller, Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes leading the charge. The coaches biggest job into the season will be determining who gets the 4th and 5th seat on the 1st unit between the likes of Anthony Beauvilier, Andrei Kuzmenko and Brock Boeser.

At this point, we'll have to wait for the on-ice results to determine whether or not this was the good strategy, can the players prove him wrong? Or should their be one deciding coach for the strategy?
