I like how you're not supplying any context here.

What is the ice time of the players above him?

!9:28, 19:38, and 19:55. Fowler and Beauch are the only 22 minute guys. Sbisa isn't a top pairing defenseman. If he was, we wouldn't be adding to him for a 2C.

We are rolling our lines pretty equally this year.
You want me to provide ice time for all those players for the past 3 seasons? Why?

You seem to be missing my point. I never said he couldn't play well with more ice time, I just said that he hasn't had that kind of ice time up to this point, so he's less proven if you will. That don't mean he can't get there, d-men take longer to develop as most people know, however that doesn't mean he will either.

O'reilly led the NHL in takeaways last season, was our leading scorer (55 points) and led all our forwards in ice time last season. How is this a 'fair trade' exactly?

O'Reilly did these things at age 21. Not bad for a "2C" as you put it.
