I don't think it's such a big deal with a little over 20 games left. It gives each a chance to play in intense late season NHL games and each a chance to rest and recharge their batteries during 4 games in 6 nights runs. And we all know there will be some injuries as the season progresses. With Timonen, Zidlicky, and Markov all figuring to play significant roles on possible medal teams, the ability to have fresher legs out there will help.
