he was on 18 to 24 minutes a game-- he just looked like he was on the ice all the time

the oilers rolled on 30 to 45 second shifts for forwards and 60 second shifts for D--most of the time. When games were a blow out, Gretz and the boys wouldm see a reduction in the minutes with the third and fourth line getting more. If they let a goal in then the top two lines would play..

for me the dead sea scrolls would be the scouting reports from the NHl teams from 75 to about 95 --for all nhl teams. Just to get an idea of why some teams did so well, while others sucked
