The thing is, if we rest Theo too much we won't make the playoffs. What's the point of resting him if we don't make it? I don't buy for a second that he would be too tired playing 70 games anyway. He's an elite, world class athlete, he can handle it. Lots of goalies play that many games. Brodeur has played over 70 every year since 1995 (except 96 where he played 67) and often goes far in the playoffs. No one ever accuses him of being too tired.

And like Medicine Twin just mentioned, Theo seems to bounce back and have super games after poor ones. We need to keep him in a rythym. Theo needs to prove he is the superstar we all think he is and the only way to do this is by shouldering the load and playing almost every game.
