<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheBoyDuddus</b></div><div>You say he almost had the 4th most even strength Ice time like that’s a good thing. Meanwhile there were only 5 defencemen playing the game... if he’s getting extra time on the power play that would put him even with everyone else you say gets special teams time over him, meaning there should be as even of a playing as you’re probably going to get. Yet he’s still last 🤔 Ceci didn’t have a partner and Sully still managed to give him more ice time even strength and overall than Pettersson.

If you think that’s how protection lists work then that’s all I need to know haha. Enjoy your day and your 5th defenceman (until Matheson gets back and bumps him down again).</div></div>

Except you’re wrong in every way as usual. There were 6 defensemen playing in the game. Ceci did have a partner. I mean I watched the game and when Matheson got hurt with only a couple minutes left in the 2nd period, he still got rotated in with a partner. I understand you don’t actually watch the game and probably should try another sport so you wouldn’t know how hockey works. If he gets extra time on the powerplay, then that will obviously take from some of his even strength time. And just an FYI Ceci and Pettersson had almost the same amount of even strength time, while Letang, Dumo, and Marino had similar even strength time.
Yep, clearly you don’t understand how expansion works. I could tell you were new to hockey but must have just started watching this year. Ask anyone on this site. Teams can either protect 7 forwards, 3 defensemen, 1 goalie or 8 total skaters and 1 goalie. Everyone close to the team and covers the team even says the pens are going to protect Letang, Dumoulin, and Pettersson as the 3 defensemen. It doesn’t surprise me with how you lack hockey knowledge that you don’t understand the expansion draft rules. And I don’t know what Ceci has to do with this...however Pettersson got the 3rd most even strength minutes today. Weird how the supposed 6th defenseman jumped to 3rd with only 1 d injury. 🤷‍♂️

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheBoyDuddus</b></div><div>Dude YOU'RE the one that was trying to use even strength ice time to justify his value. Everyone and their mother knows Letang is more valuable than Matheson and the TOI reflects that. It does the opposite for Pettersson. You can't have it both ways. When the game is on the line he's the one not getting played. Do these look like numbers that say top 4?

Tonight he played 12:32, least out of anyone even at even strength and no special teams time.
On the 27th against Boston he played 14:13, least out of anyone at even strength and no special teams time.
On the 25th against Boston he played 15:24, least out of anyone at even strength and no special teams time.
Before that against Jersey he played 14:18 which put him a whopping 7 seconds above last at even strength and the last overall with no special teams time.

You tried to say that he averages the 4th most even strength ice time and that's what makes him your 4th defenceman. I gave you the season averages which have him dead last and you tried to refute that by saying injuries skewed the numbers earlier in the season. Yet here we are looking at his most recent games and he's bottom of the barrel. So much so that he has averaged the least amount of total toi and even strength toi in the last 5 games to go along with his abysmal season averages. Keep in mind that the that he doesn't get minutes when the game actually matters or when matchups are taken into account is actually what should be jumping out at you the most. If him getting phased out was a one off then the numbers would reflect that when averaged, whether over the last 5 games or over the season.... but they dont.

Also fun fact: Ceci and Matheson are listed pretty much everywhere as your second pair.</div></div>

Also fun fact: you’re wrong on every level. 👍

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheBoyDuddus</b></div><div>Except the difference is you're straight up wrong haha. Just because Pettersson's most common partner is Marino doesn't mean he's your 4th defenceman. Since apparently you don't have time or want to give the effort to actually look at the even strength toi I'll give it to you here.

Letang 19:47
Dumoulin 19:21
Matheson 17:45
Marino 17:30
Ceci 15:52
Pettersson 15:19

He averages the least toi even strength and you said yourself that he doesn't get special teams time. He's also the least productive defenceman on the team at 0.15 points per game. That's your 6th defenceman. The stats are what makes that true.</div></div>

Except you’re wrong. That does make him the 4th defenseman. If Marino is the 3rd defenseman, then his partner is also a top 4 D, which makes him the 4th defenseman. And you’re using total season average time on ice which is skewed due to injuries when Matheson was early on in the season paired with Marino playing over 20 minutes per game. Sully has since ended that clusterf*ck of an idea. Now with everyone healthy, Matheson plays 15-18 minutes per night including 2-3 minutes of powerplay time.
The reason MP doesn’t get special teams time and doesn’t have high point totals is because he is one of 3 defensive defensemen. Of course he won’t score as many points as offensive and two way dmen. And of course he isn’t going to get powerplay time. Letang and Marino are the biggest investments and get both PP and PK time. That leaves the only other offensive option (Matheson) to get the remaining PP time as the pens don’t use 2 dmen on both units. Dumoulin and Ceci get the bulk of the PK time. So obviously no room for MP. That doesn’t make him any less of a defenseman. Just makes the pens deeper.
