I can send you a file for this, it's no problem. Just PM me. It is of course unofficial but based on situational GF/GA and has been tested against actual results. (I didn't make it, I'm just telling you what I know)

I'd imagine playing 700 games with a top 10 defender would lend itself to tons of TOI, but as I only have hockey-reference numbers which start when Sweeney was 33 I really don't have all the information here.
I see what you're saying there, but it's the same thing with any other defenseman who played with Orr, Potvin, Lidstrom, etc. They may play most of the ES minutes with that guy, but never all, because the coach wants that stud out there as much as possible and will find other ways to get them out there. There's also special teams time too.
