Part of our general divergence. Some of those peaks and valleys in SH% are not random.

I agree about qualcomp to a lesser degree here because they have frequently used Marleau against top qualcomp to offset the strategy or personnel of other teams. I do think that the Pavs/JT possession game has been strong all year whether or not they are putting the puck in the net.

I do think that they should switch those core pairings of which Sry10 speaks enough so as to be able to play anyone with anyone. That was more an issue with Heatley/JT in the year where TM basically had them joined at the hip. He had no effective move when it completely fell apart in the playoffs.
