'01/02: 19:33/game Detroit
'02/03: 21:11/game Detroit
'03/04: 21:05/game MDA

'05/06: 20:17/game MDA (5 games), 21:06/game CBJ (62 games)

Which was still tops among forwards on the MDA squads, so I don't know where you're going with the ice time point. 6 seconds/game on average points to something larger for you?
A point of contention was Fedorov having limited ice-time in Detroit because they were deep at center, hence sub-70-point seasons. Anaheim lacked depth, but Babcock felt Fedorov wasn't earning more than that same amount of ice-time - and Fedorov received typically less than 20 at the end of the season.

As for your Getzlaf/Perry point, maybe I'd buy that had they not been demoted to the AHL during the season - and had you not been wrong about Fedorov playing on the 2005-06 Mighty Ducks. I mean, thinking that Selanne signed AFTER Fedorov was traded suggests to me that you don't know that much about the 2005-06 team, hence your belief that Getzlaf/Perry deserved equal billing with Niedermayer. None of them played a game for the Mighty Ducks franchise prior to the commencement of Selanne's 90-point Masterton season.
