That explains a lot. For your reference, here's a list of Habs forwards who have seen more ice time than Moen this season:

Plekanec
Gionta
Gomez
Desharnais
Pacioretty
Cole
Kostitsyn
Darche
Cammalleri (in 3.5 periods)

That is with Moen playing almost 20% of his total ice time short-handed.

As for last year... The top 6 (Pleks, Cammy, AKost, Gomez, Gio and MaxPac) all averaged much more even strength time per game than Moen. His ES ice-time per game was pretty much on par with Eller and Pouliot (other bottom 6 guys last year).

There are short spurts where Moen will get bumped up to the top 6, for one reason or another. However, history shows that these times don't last long and it all evens up over time as Moen's ice time ends up perfectly reflecting his role of a bottom 6 winger who spends a lot of time on the PK.
