Los Angeles last year? Boston the year before? Both of their PP's were bad to average at best. But their PKs were better, especially in LA's case.
Detroit has definitely relied on their PP for many years, but the main reason is that their offense was their best defense. They would outshoot the opposition every night and that kept the puck out of their zone.
