Holik did kill penalties, just not in NJ. John Madden and Jay Pandolfo had monopolies on the #1 PK unit for NJ, where they regularly killed 3 minutes a game and the next highest guy usually didn't even have 2. That leads me to believe(and you can probably confirm this) that the units went Madden-Pandolfo, then some combination of Elias/Brylin/Nemchinov then Madden-Pandolfo again. Once Holik left NJ, his PK TOI/G finishes were: 5, 4, 4, 5, and 4.
