I find it interesting who generates powerplay opportunities for the team. Like you'd expect, it seems that the best are either very skilled, or very pesty.

EDIT 2: I think I might continue to do this, because I really don't like the way they set it up. It seems to be based off PIMS. It says Mark Fistric draws 18.2 penalties per game, which is confusing (and not true).
As Dr. Sens mentioned Behind the nets #s are per 60 mins at ES only. So Fistric playing 9.92 ES mins per game would draw about 3 mins (or 1.5) of penalties per game. Their numbers exclude coincidental penalties, so fighting majors would not count, but an instigator could.
