Mantha shifts are wayyyy to long..he floats 80% of the time
He definitely looked tired at the end, but it was triple OT after playing 4 games in 8 days with every team being relentlessly on him. Also, add in the long QMJHL playoffs. Of course, The NHL playoffs would be even more of a grind so maybe it does show a bit of a weakness.
As for taking long shifts, that seemed to be the norm for his team and coach just kept sending him out trying to get the winning goal so I'm not sure you can fault Mantha for that. He actually looked pretty good in the last game to me. He had a lot of chances and probably should have had a goal or two.
