The problem with the powerplay is lack of movement.

Guys like Datsyuk and Zetterberg can make this powerplay lethal if they start challenging the PK one-on-one.

Not all the time. But once a powerplay.
If the penetrate the box, they've got a great scoring chance. If they don't... the box is probably going to collapse to try and stop them.
Have your safety valve option (probably a drop pass) and you'll have opened some lanes.
