And on other days this season?

You asked, so here's Sid versus Geno on minutes this year:

2:30 more against Philly (1:45 more ES)
1:15 more against NYR (:45 more ES)
4:35 more against Toronto (2:20 more ES)
3:31 more against Winnipeg (3:31 more ES)
:56 less against (1:33 less ES)
4:03 more against NYR (2:01 more ES)

In some of these games, you're talking less ES TOI for Geno than Dupuis or Kunitz.

This is not some new trend. It's always been this way, aside from last year the second time Sid returned. Sid plays a bit more than Geno. Geno plays slightly more than Dupuis. It's a coaching decision. And, it doesn't matter how Sid OR Geno is playing. I'll leave it to you to decide if it's a good one.

You were saying . . . it's all there above in black and white.
