What I like more this year is that Torts is shuffling through minutes with the defenders on a game to game basis. Against the Leafs, DZ and Staal played 27 and 26 minutes respective.
None of them should be playing over 22-23 minutes a game. I understand some games will go over, but not every single one. What happens if a game goes to OT? Should McDonagh play 33 minutes?
