Or are you comparing Buffalo to the Kings?
No you didn't say anything about Buffalo, I was pointing you in their direction on goaltending. They are a prime example of a team being helped by having a rested goalie which Niemi is not. I was using Buffalo as a counterpoint to the Sharks. A similar team to the Sharks is Nashville where Rinne has looked less than stellar. At the end of the season, Rinne was ridden hard and put away wet just like Niemi. There was no intent for Buffalo to rest Miller in preparation for the playoffs, it was happenstance due to Miller's injury. Quick is sort of in between. The Kings didn't start riding him until mid-March.

I will make my point about rest again or retract it at the end of the playoffs. I have my list of goalies who were rested and those who were not for all 16 teams. Over the last half decade, the rested ones have been winning.
