Legwand lead the team in ice-time per game among forwards last year (as he does most years). It was the first year he got less than 2m of PP time, and was eventually regulated to the 3rd line for the first time in his career for an extended period. And he responded to with a 40 game goal drought.

Like I said, the only way to solve this is to do a Fisher v Legwand poll.
Look at the situations he was on the ice. Led the team in PK ice time among forwards .... 2nd in ES time for forwards .... 8th in PP TOI. Much of his time at ES was with Ward and Smithson. Legwand is capable of putting up decent numbers as long as he has quality linemates.

Most years? Last year he led forwards in TOI/g by one second. The year before he did. The three seasons before that he wasn't even in the top three in forward TOI per game.
