For a White-type of player (and this goes for Jason Smith too), I'd rather break ice time down across situation, because he's effectively getting zero powerplay time for obvious reasons. The only reason White's even strength partner Mike Mottau got more ice time than White for a season and a half was because his offense was less pathetic than White's.

Defense-only defensemen tend to get underrated by looking at ice time in general, because they generally get very few minutes in offensive situations, but the minutes they do get are the most physically taxing of any skater.
