If those playing the top minutes put up 60 points.....those playing bottom minutes are incredible player if they hit 40 points
No, it usually just means they're better-suited playing bottom minutes. Call it depth chart, roster eval/role, pecking order, doghouse, favorites/darlings or whatever you want, the fact remains:

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Coaching staff will play the bodies they feel are needed to win by all means necessary.

That is, unless they lucked into that job and know nothing about hockey compared to the average fan(atic) that posts here (which I am/ain't)
