1. It would be great if Joe shot more, drove the net with the puck, played like the world-class power forward he could be.
2. He's not going to do that.
3. So might it be a good idea to soften up his minutes so his passes DO have a chance in the playoffs and against tough opponents?
The analysis and complaints in this thread are my point.

Thought experiment, though I didn't think Winnik was an offensive black hole. Given time to gel a fast player that is strong on the puck surely can find some offensive success with players of the caliber of Pavelski and Marleau, for example on the counterattack.
