Oiler Ice Time

Only three games in so far, but its interesting to see who is getting the most ice time from MacTavish:

Player - ATOI
Eric Brewer - 23:48
Steve Staios - 23:11
Cory Cross - 20:39
MA Bergeron - 19:36
Ryan Smyth - 18:33
Jason Smith - 18:31
Radek Dvorak - 17:48
Shawn Horcoff - 16:55
Mike York - 16:06
Ales Hemsky - 15:38
Marty Reasoner - 15:13
Scott Ferguson - 14:00
Brad Isbister - 12:55
Fernando Pisani - 12:02
Ethan Moreau - 11:28
Georges Laraque - 10:37
Jason Chimera - 10:22
Raffi Torres - 10:12

The obvious time that jumps out at me is the 20:39 that Cross is on the ice, third highest on the team. On the lower side of the table, its a little surprising to see Isbister has only been getting an average of 12:55 a game.

One other obvious point - when Brewer, Staios, Cross and Bergeron are the four guys on the ice most often for your team, your defense probably isn't in the best shape in the league... I know scoring is a concern right now, but the Oiler's "top four" defensemen in terms of ice time is a little frightening.
