I don't really have anything riveting on this cold and rainy hump day, so I thought I'd quickly take a look at TOI per game for the defensemen. This year:

       Player          Team         Pos           GP           ES TOI/G           SH TOI/G           PP TOI/G           TOI/G           Sft/G
1 Kyle Quincey  COL  D  2 15:37 3:57 5:44 25:18 31.5
2 Adam Foote  COL  D  2 18:00 3:19 0:00 21:19 27
3 John-Michael Liles  COL  D  2 14:48 0:41 5:47 21:16 27
4 Scott Hannan  COL  D  2 17:05 2:52 0:01 19:58 25
5 Brett Clark  COL  D  2 11:56 3:03 3:28 18:27 25.5
6 Kyle Cumiskey  COL  D  2 11:16 0:34 2:22 14:13 20

 

Last year:

       Player          Team         Pos           GP           ES TOI/G           SH TOI/G           PP TOI/G           TOI/G           Sft/G
1 Scott Hannan  COL  D  81 18:19 3:45 0:17 22:22 27.9
2 Brett Clark  COL  D  76 16:52 3:05 2:21 22:19 29.6
3 John-Michael Liles  COL  D  75 16:58 0:31 4:02 21:32 26.1
4 Kyle Quincey LA
D  72 16:15 1:11 3:31 20:58 24.8
5 Adam Foote  COL  D  42 15:54 3:37 0:08 19:40 26.1
6 Kyle Cumiskey  COL  D  6 8:09 0:00 0:23 8:32 12.2

 

Having posted the above, I'm not sure there's really a lot of compelling data, especially with the limited sample size for this seasons numbers. Still, it's interesting that Foote is seeing an increase in ice time early on and Quincey is getting a lot more ice (so far) than he did with the Kings, especially on special teams. Nice to see four defensemen with 2+ minutes of ice time (go Kid Cumiskey!). It's even nicer to see 3 defensemen with a powerplay point already (and Brett Clark has already matched his '08-'09 PPP after two games).
