I like the idea of Vancouver trying to coast into the playoffs. Let’s hope that attitude lasts.

If Sedin played and got hurt in a game that didn’t matter, Vancouver might do something stupid. Who, them?

Pretty tacky.  Honestly, I expect that out of a VAN I guess.

I don’t think his games streak should end just because of a coach’s tactical decision regarding the team’s place in the standings. I have no problem with it at all.

If I were a Vancouver fan, I’d be more worried about the mentality of the team taking a break like this just before the playoffs start.

I understand resting him.  However, it sends the team a terrible message, leaves them short handed and is a bit of a slap in the face for fans. All that said, the part of this that makes me shake my head is that his having a games played streak to protect would seem to imply he has a knack for playing hockey games without injuring himself, yes?  You’re telling me that a guy who has played 82 games SEVEN STRAIGHT SEASONS (and two more earlier in his 11 year career) can’t make it through a game intact? 

The absurdity of protecting an “iron man” (insert your own Meryl Streep jokes here)  is astounding.  If nothing else let him go out there in power plays and play fourth liner minutes (9-12?) in they manner.
