It's just like they are pure alibi-moves so that he can say: "Well I tried it, it didn't work".
edit: @Isle Junkie: As far as I know, he didn't say that he will change them this game. He said maybe, but also maybe only after one or two more games to see if they can bounce back before he separates them.
Your 1st paragraph has been the status quo...I often wanted to mention such...Hopefully proper usage of key toughness as in the case of#17 will get a win....not as in the case of 2 mins per period against Ottawa. Since I know Martins game well..if coaching tries it...Tav will have to be able to obsorbe a check once and a while...other wise #17 may be expected to straighten someone out taing him off the ice. A few games of being Tav. body guard...the league will back off him a bit giving Tav a new sort of energy and broadening of shoulders....It took Stamkos a few games also..then away they went
