He got that much time because he was their partner, not necessarily because he is a 25 minute a night(#1) defenseman. It's still a solid pick though.
He wasn't really either of their partners. Those 3 guys were just used A LOT, and in different combinations. All three weren't actually together very long. He's been a 23+ minute guy for 7 seasons in a row now.
