D STEPAN 18:56 82GP 51P

this tells us:

Stepan got the most ice time out of the 3
Stepan played the most games out of the 3
Stepan played on a Conference winning team riding shotgun with Gaborik whereas the 2 others teams didnt even make the playoffs
Not a significant higher amount of TOI.
Those teams didn't make the playoffs. Part of it is because they were not as deep as they should be. Therefore, the fact that they got less TOI tells me that their teams didn't even see them as players that were good enough to be getting top 6 minutes. And if you're not getting those minutes on non-PO teams, your definitely not getting them on contenders.
Most games? Maybe that's because he isn't injury-prone, as the others might be. I've never seen people say that playing 82 games is a bad thing.
Gaborik did not play the majority of the season with Stepan. A high amount of Gaborik's points started coming when Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik was put together.
