If they are as bad at cycling as you say they are, they wouldn't have a good power play.
You're absolutely right 5v5 is harder. Unfortunately, most of the relevant players on this team (i.e. the ones who are going to be on it in 3 years) need to grow out of their teenage bodies and get more experience in the league before they are a potent even strength threat.
Growth and experience only come with time.
