They all appeared to have about the same PP skill, generally. And that does make some sense, considering we're all taking the 1000th-1400th-best players here, which means they're bound to be similar..
You have a point to an extent - I think Brian Campbell's numbers in Chicago are very proportional to the amount of PP time he received - first he lost his role as the main QB to Duncan Keith (and even better PP QB than Campbell), then he lost his role on the top unit entirely because of Keith's chemistry with Seabrook.

But if you're saying the biggest difference between the numbers that Brian Campbell and Colin White put up is that Campbell received more PP time, I'm going to have to call BS.
