Absolutely key. Example: Henrik Zetterberg. He posted 80 in 80 in 2010-11, and was injured at the end of the year and missed the first round of the playoffs. Last year, he played all 82 games and posted only 69 points, but still played top-end defense. He was pretty clearly hurting to start the year, but with the Wings already out two other forwards to injury, there wasn't the option of resting. Even with the injury, his line (with Filppula and Hudler) was one of the best offensive lines in the league - and he outpaced Datsyuk in ES scoring both per game and per minute.
