All that said, quality of competiton definitely varied much more pre-lockout, when teams could ice the puck if they didn't like a certain matchup.

Also, coaches are more likely to use on the fly changes to maintain matchups in the playoffs

Most importantly, can someone please explain why absolute QualComp values are meaningful? I always looked at them as more relative to each other.
