Ok, I'm with you on that logic, to a point. Funny how Pittsburgh didn't do the same thing and ice an AHL lineup today, but that's not really the point.
My point is simply this: How exactly do you properly evaluate these guys when they are put at an extreme disadvantage? How do you properly evaluate a goalie who hasn't played a game in forever, when you hang him out to dry in front of that sad excuse for a defense?
If you are afraid you won't be rested enough for the season opener, or don't want to see any injuries at this point, then don't schedule the ****ing game, because this doesn't show anyone anything.
