That's all conjecture. If the coaching staff draw up a PP, and he happens to score 1/4 of all the goals in said PP, then he's going to get ice time in said PP. Maybe he doesn't play on the first unit on a team with a competent PP, or maybe he scores more with a better PP system around him. He does have decent hands around the net. But you really can't guess at this stuff and assume what a guy may or may not do on another roster. He could score a lot more or a lot less, but all we can do is blindly guess at that.

I don't see the point in this baseless conjecture though. I understand the team is playing like crap in their away games and is down in the series. And he is the captain. There are valid complaints that can be levied at that and the team in general for their playoff performance. But calling him a 3rd liner or wildly guessing what he may or may not do on another team, what's the point of that?
