They haven't even been basing it on stats, really. Look at ES ice time. DD and Plekanec have obviously been used "overall" in a 1A/1B manner. Looking at their production, well, 60:52 seems pretty 1A/1B there, too. Another interesting "stat" is that only one forward in the NHL averages over 3 mins of PP AND PK ice time per game: Tomas Plekanec. The only people to come close to this last year? Tomas Plekanec and Ryan Kesler. The year before that? Tomas Plekanec and Ryan Kesler (and maybe Handzus).
Guy isn't even really "over-worked". He just looks that way dragging a lot of scrubs around every night, because he isn't a Malkin or Crosby who is legitimately capable of such things.
