Some players are more or less effective with more or less TOI. Simply increasing his TOI doesnt statistically translate into more points.
Why not just play Giroux for 60 minutes a night under this theory? If he can score 100 points at 22ish minutes, imagine his production if he never came off the ice?
Oh wait, he'll be tired? He'll become less effective after a certain while? Thats why you can't just massage the numbers. You can argue that JVR may have the conditioning to play 22 effective minutes a night, but how can you be so sure? Could you say with the same assurance that so to would Rinaldo or Shelley, if not, why?
This 'Theory' of yours has many many holes, and is 100% irrelevant.
