I think having Pavs and Z on separate PP units could help. Giving Smith consistent PP time should help. Getting White back should help. I'd like to see something like:

Kronwall-Eaves (right shot)

Smith-Lashoff (has a good shot)

Once we get healthy White can slot onto the top PP unit in place of Eaves.
Giving it some thought, I have to say, I like this concept a lot. Thinking it out with the combo's you used, essentially could give the PP a different look with each unit. I say this because there's no net front presence on the first unit. That said, I doubt it happens, but this kind of thinking is what needs to happen if things don't start rolling.
