I think there's a lot of truth to the idea that you cant really tell how a PP is doing just by comparing with last season or rankings. Having said that I do agree that you should be working on making it better.
There some truth to what you say, but these things tend to balance themselves out over the course of a season. Some teams get better, some teams get worse. All in all though, when you go from near the top of the league on the PP to bottom 10 in the league while giving up the most SH goals against, it is very valid and fair to compare to previous years and wonder why the PP has gotten worse.
