SKK raises extremely good points about offensive vs. defensive zone starts along with the potentiality of wearing the guys down when they'd probably be best served being fresh on the bench ready to hop over the boards when the penalty expires.

But, again... in situations where it makes sense (like the other team playing too many guys on the first unit for all 2 minutes and trying to catch them when they are tired)... I see no reason to keep them on the bench. I certainly see no reason not to play them in "do or die" situations like the playoffs.

I'm also not too worried about the extra couple of minutes they might rack up. With some players I would... but these guys are both horses.
