I don't know. I call it being realistic. There is little difference between a team that has clinched resting injured players or key players to avoid injury, or resting their starting netminder, because their regular season is over, and a team who is obviously not going to make the playoffs doing the same thing. Think of it as an early pre-season

I don't know about cards, but, uh, I think these four-fives beat a full house. Hey banker, cash me out, yo.
