Stuff like this blows my mind. Since he came to the NYR, only 5 d-men in the league have played more games. Games played since the lockout by d-men:

Bouwmeester - 410
Phaneuf - 404
Keith - 404
Hannan - 404
Hamhuis - 403
Rozsival - 400

He may play a lot hurt, which is a testament to his commitment. But few d-men in the league miss less time than this guy. 5 to be exact.
