Hockey coaches play the guys they trust, and sometimes the players they trust completely befuddle the fanbase.

Jacque Lemaire loved Martin Skoula, and that made no sense to me.

Todd Richards doesn't trust Nick Schultz to generate points, and since the team trailed most of the season, Schultz's TOI suffered. But for S & Gs, let's look at the TOI stats for our defense.

Zidlicky 24:10
Johnsson 23:46
Burns 22:22
Zanon 22:22
Barker 22:01
Schultz 20:58

You are all arguing like there's a huge discrepancy between the defensemen. I'd say that's a pretty consistent defense rotation. This TOI doesn't prove/disprove that Schultz is/isn't worth his contract.
