Good summary of the problems. I've also noticed that other teams break down our PK box pretty easily. I wouldn't expect Goligoski to help any of that, he looks like he should be in the front office at this point. 

On the PP, this needs to be a volume shooting unit that actually enjoys scoring greasy goals. They all count as 1. A few years ago, I posed the question, what do our players like better when scoring, the puck crossing the line, or the swish of the twine in back? For me, I love the twine splashing, but get most enjoyment out of seeing a +1 on the scoreboard. I think it should be the same way with the players, but I find that some of the stars are trying to get too pretty. 

Your totals at the end of the season aren't "he had 25 pretty goals." They are, he scored X amount, no matter how they went in (even off your backside). So, Wild, start shooting the puck more and go to work after it's shot.
