As for the rest of your post, I agree he should get more PP time.. but he needs to stop turning over the puck. He could EASILY be scoring more points at ES than on the PP because other teams are watching our "#1" line right now.
Doesn't matter if he has a bad shootout percentage. He's still a gamebreaker. It's also a way for the coach to show that he trusts his player. This can help with confidence.

As for the ES scoring, there's no doubt, he's in a slump. But like I said, I feel his ES scoring would come back if he would get hot on the PP.

He had 67 giveaways last season, he's always going to do some. It's normal for a player that plays that style.
