Not necessarily. He could play 10-15 min/game at even strength and receive zero minutes on the PK or PP. Other d-men can double shift alongside Pronger when needed, it's not like NHL 09 where the defensive pairings are static throughout the game. Kent Huskins and Steve Montador will both be ahead of McIver on the depth chart.
