Corey Abbott examines the struggles of Los Angeles and the continued optimism in Carolina in the latest What Went Wrong

A lot of poolies play with the power play points category but a lot also just play with power play goals.

There can be a huge difference in value when playing each of the categories. The following players have good or very good value in power play points but very little or none in power play goals.

The following players have yet to score but have piled up at least eight assists.

Anze Kopitar - 16

Mikko Koivu - 13

Alex Goligoski- 10

The next group have one goal:

Brad Boyes - 12

Henrik Sedin - 11

Kris Letang - 10

Sergei Gonchar - 9

Loui Eriksson - 8

Christian Ehrhoff -8

Marek Zidlicky - 8

Marian Gaborik - 7

Slava Voynov -7

Martin Erat - 7

Lubomir Visnovsky - 7

Just to let you know, in pools that use just power play goals, Martin Brodeur has more value than Anze Kopitar.
