*Buzzsaw* Posted April 7, 2015 Share Posted April 7, 2015 Last night the Sedins played their hearts out and turned up their intensity. Ice time was WAY up over their year's average at close to 21:00 minutes for both of them. The fact they were able to find that extra gear and turn on the skills is a testament to WD's Ice Time management during the season. At 34, they can't be expected to play that many minutes regularly and Willie is smart enough to recognize that. His whole strategy has been about keeping them fresh and ready for key games and the playoffs, and his ability to recognize when they ready to go and to take them off the leash in key games like last night tells you this guy understands the game and his players. Night and Day compared to Tortorella's approach and the 'old/tired' Sedins of last season. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
