Look at the 53-54 season, Henry-Bentley-Hergesheimer was the first PP line that year, and they have the numbers to back it up. If you weren't a first liner(with rare exceptions like Henry who was a PP specialist) you barely got any PP time back then.
The Bentleys played the point. Mickoski was behind Henry, Hergesheimer, Ronty at forward on the PP.
