A couple "leftover" powerplay minutes here and there doesn't constitute a true chance, IMO.

With St. Louis, they announced to the media prior to the game that they were going to give him a shot on the first line with prime pp time. That's given him a true chance, and making it known to him they're giving him a real shot. As opposed to our apporach... "Gamache... there's 25 seconds left on this powerplay, go make something happen... this is your chance."
