Ramsey 1982-1992: 18.37 + 1.19 + 3.45 = 23.01
Lowe 1982-1992: 16.55 + 0.90 + 3.21 = 20.66

According to this, it seems Lowe was the least-used in all situations among these three.

1985: undrafted
1986: 3 undrafted
1987: undrafted

**Coffey’s now gone**

1988: undrafted
1989: undrafted
1990: no one, he was the #1
1991: 4 undrafted
1992: 5 undrafted

Exactly, one of the reasons I really have to question icetime. I mean it is something but hardly the end all be all.

Scott Stevens/Niedermayer is my favourite recent example.
What do you mean by this? Stevens from 1993-2004 averaged 24.50 minutes per game, Niedermayer averaged 23.13.

Niedermayer started to play more than Stevens as he entered his prime and Stevens aged, which is no surprise.

Still, the gap in their TOI (which was small) was fueled by Niedermayer getting a load of PP time and Stevens getting very little. Niedermayer took slightly longer before he was played more at ES than Stevens, which was more due to skating and matchups than overall ability, and from 1999-2004 the overall gap was a whopping 0.12 minutes per game anyway – safe to say that the eye test can easily override something that simple.

Posts that don’t contribute materially to the draft long-term are deleted on an ongoing basis. In your post’s case it was just made right before a cleanup was done so the deletion probably seemed, to you, rather abrupt.

Rest assured that post would have been deleted tonight or tomorrow anyway!
