Incidentally the decrease in TOI in the playoffs is more indicative of a tendency to lean on skill players which is a virtue Lindy wouldn't exhibit in any any case.
11th in qualcomp among Blues forwards. He was a little better in the Corsi variations of that stat, but still, he is. Not. Good. Defensively. He fills zero holes for us. He's an offense-only player at this point, and he isn't good enough there, either.
