well, JP has continued to get PP time despite being on a "lower" line, so its not like Trotz is totally shafting him. For whatever reason JP has not been able to be effective when on a line with our other "scorers" and so he was the "extra' player and had to just be fit in wherever he could.
Good players make the best of such situations, and lets hope this isnt a fluke and he picks up his scoring touch now.
