Definitely Maltsev. Better player, better playmaker.

Top powerplay skaters hit those numbers all the time, as it's not terribly strenuous playing keepaway. You want the most possible talent on the ice for your first unit powerplay, and I see no reason why over the course of a season Keats and Martinec couldn't learn to work together.
I agree. My philosophy is that the top PP unit should be as stacked as possible.

The only exception would be if jarek wanted to run 2 equal PPs of 2 different styles - a crash the net PP and a European-style perimeter PP. But in a 40 team draft, you'd be hard pressed to find enough talent to do that IMO.
