lol that's a good comparison. I remember having knock-down drag out fights with Trottier earlier in the season about the INSANE time Kovy was getting (it was even thirty minutes early in the season...no coincidence he wound up on the shelf for two weeks after getting 30+ in three games during a two-week span), with him saying it's never bad to play your horses and me saying it's a long season and you can't play games in November like it's a deciding playoff game. If you have to play games in November that way you're not good enough to do anything in the playoffs anyway.

And I've been arguing against 75 games for Marty for years and voila, the first full season he comes in significantly under that he has his best playoff run since 2003. Even the year he got hurt he was pretty good against the Canes till Game 7, he was facing 40+ shots a game the last four games of the series though so eventually it was going to take a toll.
