I think either PPG/PPO (PP goals/power plays) or PPG/min. would be the best. I see what you're saying, except that some teams may put their lesser PP unit out first, and some may put their best unit out there for close to the whole 2 minutes. Such scenarios would distort PPG/min. Even if they didn't do either of those, the goal is to score one goal on the PP, not do so the fastest.
