What does that mean, I understand sheltered minutes mean probaly like getting more offensive zone starts and few defensive zone starts, but how are you judging the players he is up against. Does it mean that he doesn't go againt other teams top lines? Does he face other teams bottom pairing d-men?

Because it seems like most teams both their top pairing d-men vs the DD line.
It's exactly what you said.
If you see top pairing its because your watching a road game.

Really, how many times have you seen DD go in the corners with Chara, Bergeron, Phaneuf, Kessel, Crosby, Letang and co? Very few times.
