it's not only the player's stats that make a difference but his presence effect on other players. they expect koivu and parise won't have to kill penalties (as much) as our top guys have had to in the past because we have bottom six guys more capable of doing that. Sutter will be fresher against the tough assignments because our second pair can log more minutes without exposing us, etc. Brodin was our breakout game in houston...give him a couple games in the NHL and he'll be doing it up here too.
