The ignore list deprived you of a shockingly information-bearing post (copy and pasted though).

From SimplySensational's quote probably of a comment on the post:
Based on my hockey-reference crunching……

Last year regular season, teams scoring 0 on the power play went 306-379-88 for .906 points per game.

Caps were 7-9-1 in the regular season for .882 ppg, which was 17th in the league.

Also noteworthy, those 17 games were tied with 3 other teams for the fewest games held scoreless on the PP.
That pretty much destroys the stat. (Of course it doesn't change the fact that they suck at even strength.)
