For sure. You have guys who log 20 minutes a night and have 4 or 5 points all year and are minus players. It's almost February... time to change it up. With about 10% of the ice time, the younger players have put up way better numbers. It's not rocket science.

But this phenomenon seems to happen at all levels with vets/coach's pets. Watching the Leafs-Habs game Saturday, garbage players like Kaberle and Bouillon log big minutes all game without ever making a strong offensive play, while guys like Diaz lag on the bench and chip in with an assist or a great pass in their 5 minutes of play.

Wake up!!
