besides, he chose laich to take the face off who's fo% is not as good as backstrom's. whats the next excuse? this one failed.
lastly, that was just a small example of the overall match up madness. as of today 8's average toi is 19:36 and 21's is 18:34. last season in a non matching world 8 averaged 3 more minutes a game than 21. you are a guy that likes the matchup. this is the price you pay
