30 minutes per game is about right, i don't see the point of playing him the whole game tonight (Why risk injury when the game is not important and half of the game is enough to keep Cloutier sharp?), than again Crawford is known of mishandling of goalie schedule which has contribute to two seasons which the starting goalie has been injuried heading into the playoff. It is definately a situation that is interesting, but on the positive note Canucks have Hedberg if Crawford manages to mishandle Cloutier again.
