I don't know how you think he doesn't deserve more than 22 minutes a night. Maybe if we were talking last October/November, but not since then.

He is +11 since his poor start to the last season (AKA December on). So that's over his last 64 games. In that time the team sits at roughly -14 G/A. So far this season he starts in the offensive zone the least amount of all the Avs defencemen (tied with Hejda). He's been going head to head against the top lines, and is still +5 in 12 games. He may not be scoring but he makes a big difference to the team.

The difference between him in the lineup this season verse not in the lineup:

To add:
With EJ (12 games)
GF: 2.42
GA: 2.33

Without EJ (11 games)
GF: 2.72
GA: 3.55

If EJ hasn't earned more than 22 minutes a night, then what have all the other defencemen earned?
