In 2007-2008 Laraque played all the season in Pittsburgh (He played 71 games) and again had around 7-8 minutes a game.

In 2008-2009 also Godard played pretty much all season in Pittsburgh and got 4 minutes a game which is pretty much what all coaches are giving him.

I think we'll see Parros, if he's effective, during 60-70 games at around 4-5 minutes a game.
You think we'll see Parros around 60-70 games, and we just might. There typically isn't much about the use of 4-5 min/night enforcers - by Therrien or any other coach - that is synonymous with "every day player", though. Do they not often spend time in the press box when they're not spending 55 mins/night on the bench (especially in the playoffs)?
