If they're setting up the PP units to feature certain combinations, they have to see if those combinations can develop some chemistry.

As for ice time, it can vary according to game situations. One game, especially one with limited penalties, isn't always an accurate gauge.
They have the same forwards as last year, they were all on that dismal PP, so why should they continue to get PP time?

Because they are the best option, they are the players you look to for production. Looking to Chris Bourque to be a productive NHLer is foolish IMO. He'll be an OK option on the 3rd line, playing 3rd line minutes.

Players excel when put in role that are suited for them, expecting him to produce points might not be a role he's suited for and it's one expected of the players on the PP.
