Not sure how it adds up to a big deal each time. Maybe it does. I'm just thinking I wouldn't automatically jump to the conclusion that it's anything more than SOP.
I think teams are making their reports for the season and sending pro-scouts to all their rival teams to get the books in order for the season. Every point matters so much more than usual.
