My thoughts are that talented players should free-lance out there. I don't subscribe to a coach 'setting up' a powerplay.
Let some talented guys freelance, make sure that somebody covers the point, and see what happens.
I don't really believe that a coach can make a powerplay work, I think it's not really in his power to make up for lack of talent and what they do, they should not be told what to do. Talent will make it work.
