TOI, whichever way you want to look at it, is dramatically impacted by the team a player plays on. Overall TOI/G is no more "misleasding" than ES, PP, SH, or whatever else kind of TOI you want to look at.

Overall TOI tells you how valuable he is to his team. ES tells you how valuable his is to his team.... at even strength. Which one is a better measure of the player's true overall value? (should I even have to asl that?)
The whole point was using ES TOI/G to judge how comfortable a coach felt putting that player out there in potential defensive situations..
