McDonagh isn't even in the top 20 of average icetime around the league. He and Girardi are 23rd and 24th

If you want them to be top pairing defensemen that's how many minutes they're going to play (24-25). That's pretty much what the best defensemen in the league play every single year

One game of high icetime isn't enough to freak out about
