The game is also more open offensively than when Leggy began his career. I would compare FF & this years pick with how Radulov was inserted into the lineup.
Radulovs TOI in 06-07 was 11:38 including PP time
07-08 16:24 also including PP time

06-07 he was playin 3rd and 4th line
07-08 He played 2nd line

What will determine increased ice time will be DP if he does not sign any other forwards there will be increased ice time for the remaining forwards but FF and the 4 pick will not be playing 1st or 2nd line minutes.
