And at some point, I'd like to see some evidence to back up this idea that Bowman held Fedorov back. Because my memory of the situation was that Fedorov was always a 20+ minute player on some of the highest-scoring teams of his era. Defensive assignments be damned, there were certainly some offensive advantages there.

But boy, does he get a lot of mileage out of the idea that, 'Bowman held him back'.
It's not so much Scotty holding him back but he had a specific role for Feds and even used him on defense , or is it just luck that Feds scoring goes up the 1st year with Dave Lewis?

detroit also liked to use a scoring by committee approach, especially on the PP
