Take Brown off the PP, insert Loktionov?

Ok, not as simple as the title suggests, but I found this article from Scott Cullen of TSN interesting:

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=386057

The article looks at players with big swings in PP time per game. Brown has seen the 36th largest jump of all players between this year and last year for players who have played at least 10 games in both seasons. He's up 57 seconds of PP time per game.

On the flip side, Loktionov has seen the fourth largest drop off, going from 2:34 per game last year to 32 seconds per game this year.

Considering Brown isn't really doing much offensively anyways, and the fact it'd be nice to see some more creativity on the PP, would you work things around to insert Loktionov and remove Brown?

Also, as a side note, Wayne Simmonds has seen the biggest PP time of anyone in the league going up to 2:26 per game in Philly compared to 51 seconds per game in LA last year. Ponikarovsky also had a big increase, but only Simmonds seems to have benefitted much from it. Handzus meanwhile is down to 1:04 per game in San Jose, compared to 2:41 a game in LA.
