He didn't play #2 minutes "in a pinch". He's played top-pairing minutes regularly for the last half-decade plus.

The quality of his play is at least debatable (even though you haven't supported your claim that he wasn't top-pairing calibre for most of that time, and I have supported the contrary). The quantity of his play is not.

He's played top-pairing minutes regularly, period. Not "in a pinch".
