Yeah but all those extra minutes burn out some of our guys. I really wish Martin would ease up on Plekanec's PK minutes. I love, love, love Plekanec on the PK but it was quite clear to me that the guy slowed down last year (the Olympics probably didn't help either).

We have the 6th best PK in the league and Pyatt is a huge part of that, as he's second on the team in PK time per game (Halpern is first - damn what a signing!).

Boyd really wasn't great in his last few games and Pyatt seems to be chewing up more minutes than Boyd was, while not hurting the team and playing great on the PK.

True, but I still wouldn't want to not give Picard a chance. The guy has been way more than anyone can expect. I know +/- isn't the best stat, but its quite clear to me that leading the team (defense) and being 5th in the NHL (defense) can't be a bad thing.
