Still hes playing the least amount on the kings.DS reward good play with mins if hes getting the least amount of mins to mean that means he s not playing well period.
Have you considered the possibility that he is moved up for the odd shift (or others moved down) due to other reasons, such as in game injuries (where a guy needs to miss a shift) or juggling lines after a powerplay or a penlaty kill, as some players may be tired and need a break. It happens often in the game, especially in the 2nd and 3rd period. The lines don't stay set all game long, they get mid game adjustments, and it's not just because Nolan looks good or someone else looks bad.
