He never averaged 14 minutes/game in any of his successful seasons. If you look at his icetime in his good seasons and bad seasons you'll notice he's best when playing 18+ (like he was in preseason). He played 9 more even strength seconds than Moen too. His icetime is definitely closer to being a 3rd liner than a top 6 forward.
Didn't play the 4th line for obvious reasons so the third line got their ice time inflated though.
