If they clinch tonight I can see maybe the benefit of getting him some ice time in the remaining games if they're assuming he has a chance to make the club next year. Give the big guns a rest going into the playoffs. But only if they actually clinch tonight otherwise it's a fairly stupid ass thing to do.
I can only see that happening going into the last game, and if the last game doesn't mean anything.
They are going to try to finish as high as they can.
The way it's looking now, that last game against Chicago will determine whether we finish in 4th, 5th or 6th. Like was mentioned in the other thread, Chicago may sit some of their top talent, but I don't think we are likely to, unless it is mathematically impossible for us to catch San Jose or LA at that point (unlikely).
