Yah but most of those rules were to help puck carriers. He does that some in transition but I don't think Martin's failures this playoff have much to do with him getting reamed on penalty no-calls (obstruction, etc). He was just out of his element. He isn't built for a tough series against Philly or New York (for example). I still think Philly had another gear speed-wise we weren't expecting in the playoff and when they started pressuring our D, we got eaten alive and Martin was just one of the more obvious victims.
