To each their own, just found that surprising as I feel EJ is one of those exact opposite guys who thrive with more ice-time.
I agree. EJ plays best when he is given 24-26 minutes. Hopefully the next coach sees this and really leans on him to carry the load. If it turns out he can't handle it, then we at least know what he is at that point and can move on. I think it is very possible with a new coach that EJ has a break out year.
