Holtby, too, said all the right things. He said “it is easier if we don’t think about it at all.” They tell him to play, he’ll play. Just 23, he acknowledges he doesn’t have the huge backlog of stats needed to make a claim to anything just yet. “My goal,” he said, “is to have a full season where I keep learning, keep improving, keep getting better.”

No doubt he can do that. It will be interesting to see what kind of numbers he puts up with a 60-start regular season, or even a 35-start season in this abbreviated campaign.

The guess is they’d be awfully good.
