By traditional stats our powerplay is currently ranked 10th in the league. Not bad,right? However, looking closer it's pretty clear that there's some wonky percentages at play here.

So right off the bat a 24.2% 5 on 4 shooting percentage isn't sustainable. As a baseline the league average last season was 5 on 4 was around 12%.

Those of us that put a value on shooting percentages will conclude that some unsustainable percentages have masked a godawful power play.

The first thought that jumped in my head was that Bufuglien's absence must play a big part in our problems generating shots on the powerplay.
