How sure are you that this actually happened?

Because MAB averaged less ES time on ice than anyone that played D for the Habs that year except Belle. Carlet and Weber had more when called up. Martin obviously only tolerated MAB to put him in offensive situations.

If he ever got near 20 it was probably forced by injuries or the team got a whack load of PP time when anyone sensible would want him out on the ice.

This does not resemble how Cube was used tonight, Therrien deployed him like he was Roman Hamrlik.
