I said yes. Constant rotation with players at the end of the season having played 70 games each......Im only in it for a division title

no, but for gods sake bench players that dive. Kesler should have been benched in the playoffs after the dives he took. We do not want to be a diving team so how about the coach or management steps in and teaches the players a lesson. I mean players get less ice time or even sit out for a few games if they aren't playing well, so how about giving the same treatment to the divers?

What about the family that can afford one game per year and it's late in the season and it ends up being an AHL game?

By rolling 4 lines??

We know that AV will always shorten the bench. If we are up by a goal...shorten the bench to protect the lead. If we are down by a goal...shorten the bench to get a goal. No wonder our guys are injured. Seriously...we need a 4th line that AV trusts to play 10 minutes. But knowing AV...that'll never happen.

Spot on. If I recall the SCF season our 4th line actually played 10-13 minutes in quite a few games. This season was down to around 5. AV has to trust the players.
