For a good comparison, take a look at New Jersey's Colin White. Very similar defensive stats and ice time stats.
At least check your stats before you blunder into saying something that is 100% false.

Even strength time on ice per game care of NHL.com
1 RHETT WARRENER 15:33
2 JORDAN LEOPOLD 14:57
3 ROBYN REGEHR 14:56
4 TONI LYDMAN 14:55
5 DENIS GAUTHIER 14:29
6 ANDREW FERENCE 13:36

So how is Gauthier normally number one in even strength ice time when he's averaging the 5th most on the year? Obviously we generally roll the 3 defense pairings thus far in the season. Gauthier is obviously not the #1 choice to have out there, the numbers just don't support that.

Short handed time on per per game care of NHL.com
1 JORDAN LEOPOLD 3:16
2 ROBYN REGEHR 3:15
3 RHETT WARRENER 2:55
4 DENIS GAUTHIER 2:26
5 TONI LYDMAN 1:49
6 ANDREW FERENCE 1:43

Doesn't look he could be normally 1st or 2nd since he's clearly 4th on this list. Regehr and Leopold are Sutter's obvious first choices to throw out there shorthanded.

Who's the mental midget again? Go spew your misinformation elsewhere. If you're going to use stats to back your argument up don't blatantly lie. Makes your argument look extremely suspect when you have to make up stats.

And this is coming from the guy who predicted earlier this summer/spring that Leopold would get 16-17 minutes a night this season. I argued he would be top two. Guess who's averaging the most ice time so far this season? Weren't you also trying to argue that Regehr had not yet passed Denis on the depth chart?
