And WHO exactly does the coach put in above the players you mentioned when he wants to win? WHO? Find some goals do some coaching where in the Rangers' lineup was there a player who just needed that extra playing time but was uncomfortable because of the coach.

If you say Lisin I'll laugh quietly and inwardly. Perhaps an outward chuckle that will cause co-workers to raise their heads. But that's all.
That's a typical NYR stretch. Just because Henrik was tired doesn't mean he couldn't perform. Also, if you recall, the bottom six was more valuable than the top six during that stretch. All those players were noticeably worn or even said so in the media. Prospal was a mid-30 year old, played on a generally fast line with a fast player in Gaborik, and had himself a fine season. By the end, he was toast. Staal I would say is one of the only players who adjusted well (besides normal season wear and tear) to upgrading his minutes dramatically from Renney to Torts.
