Hunter will never do that.
maybe i am wrong, but i dont recall boudreau ever skating sloan 25 minutes in a hockey game. i also dont recall him ever choosing to cut green and morrisonn's minutes so that he could protect a 1 goal 3rd period lead by sending out sloan every other shift.

you are confusing two different things. nobody has an issue with beagle and hendricks dressing and playing, which is your complaint about sloan. using beagle and hendricks as toi leaders among forwards and using them every other shift while they were pinned in their own end of the ice is a completely different thing.
