1:20-1:30 seems pretty normal for first unit point men. If Housley is playing bottom pairing and not playing the PK, I can honestly see him playing the whole PP sometimes, but on average, he can probably handle 1:40 if that's how you want to use him.

NJ just went to the finals playing Kovalchuk on the point for basically the full 2 minutes of basically every powerplay

It's become ATD convention to assume teams will spend 7 minutes per game on the PP - I'm planning on playing Paul Coffey for 6 of those (with almost no PK time); does anyone have a problem with that? Kovalchuk will see slightly less time than Coffey because he'll be moved off the point in the third period if my team has the lead.
