Greg Johnson said yesterday that he thinks this will be the biggest factor of all the rule changes. The ability to conceivably put your top line out against a tired line will be huge. Especially if we have our 3rd line out, they force an icing, and we change in one of the two rested lines featuring 3 of Legwand, Robo, Kariya, Walker, Sullivan, and Erat.

edit...thanks as always for the write up pred303.
