I can't remember them ever being paired together except for odd times resulting from a partial line change or a Girardi/Staal/DZ penalty. McD-G obviously logged the most minutes against top opposition. So I would expect that they on average would possess the puck less and create less 5 on 5 focused on d vs an odd time when McD/Stralman were paired together with (I assume) the specific goal of pushing the pace.
Thank you, I try very hard not to have an agenda.
The WOWY charts that I use (and RagnerBoy linked to) does unfortunately not contain QoC information. You can have them adjusted for zone starts and restricted to close game situations though.
