Sauer averaged 18:43 of ice time in his 19 games last season, with no power play time. That put him solidly 4th of the guys dressed when you figure Staal was out the entire time Sauer was healthy. The year before he was paired with Del Zotto on the second pair then Mcdonagh. At the end of the season Mccabe was brought over averaging more ice time, but Sauer was always a 2nd pairing guy.

Look he'll never be an all star or light the lamp scoring, but when healthy he's physical and makes the smart play in the zone.
