They have, however, allowed minutes to be much more evenly distributed than previously. The other thing to keep in mind, however, is that we've had a lot of blowout wins (particularly when the team got really hot in November), and that allows you to be far looser in who you send certain players out there against. When you're up by 3-4 goals in the third period, you care a lot less if Shelley is out there against Crosby (let alone the 3rd pairing D).
**** you, dick. I was looking up those stats already. Don't steal my ****ing thunder, jackhole.
