    I suspect the efficiency vs minutes causation is the opposite of what is being assumed here. He didn't play better with more minutes, he got more minutes when he was playing well.

    That said, I agree with the general assertion that players should be able to play better, force less, play more in rhythm and let the game come to them when they are not playing limited stints or getting yanked at their first mistake.
    We have an answer to the Boucher question: (A) Does he play better when he gets guaranteed minutes, or (B) does Nurse give him minutes because he's playing well? Well, Boucher was gifted guaranteed minutes in December, because we had no other options... and he's right back up to his efficient scoring ways. Correct answer is: (A).

    If the idea is to boost his trade value, then he should be getting 20+ minutes a game until the trade deadline.

      So the team that trades for him should provide the same amount of minutes too.
      Which team is that?

        This is nice to see. Players need rhythm. Guys perform better with consistent minutes and roles. This was the case with Norm when he was here too. Consistent minutes will typically yield consistent production/performance, especially when playing with better teammates.
