Most Minutes Played (TOI) and Highest Minutes Per Game (TOI/G) In A Single NHL Season

Yesterday I was tweeted some of Ryan Suter’s impressive minutes played numbers from this season. For those that should be following but aren’t:

- Suter had three straight games last week where he played over 35 minutes and 28 seconds. Two of those games were over 36 minutes.
- Suter is averaging 29:36 minutes per game, 2:25 minutes more than the next player, Erik Karlsson.
- In 10 of Suter’s 21 games, he has averaged over 30 minutes.

It was pointed out to me by follower Matt Horner that Suter is on pace to play over 2,400 minutes this season, something that hasn’t been done that often. I decided to look into it to see who had the most minutes in a season.

The first chart is ranked by TOI and the second is by TOI/G, showing where Suter and Karlsson rank for this season. (I only took the TOI/G for the top 10 TOI players for each season)

A couple interesting notes:

- Nicklas Lidstrom had 6 seasons of 2,200 minutes or more. Chris Pronger had 5 seasons.
- Pavel Bure and Paul Kariya are the only forwards to be  listed in the top 10 in TOI at the end of a season. Bure cracked the top 30 all-time list for minutes played.
- Dan Boyle’s TOI ranking with such little SH TOI.

Below the chart is a link to view the top 10 players from each season. NHL.com listing the 1997-98 season as the first season they tracked time-on-ice.

Free Agent Hits: Cowen, Kaberle and Cleary

  • Bruce Garrioch: Senators GM Bryan Murray on Jared Cowen: ”We’d love to have him in camp but we played a lot of games without him last year.”
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators and Jared Cowen have some work to do on a new deal according to his agent. They haven’t had talks since last Friday.

    “The talks are ongoing. We’re continuing to work on the deal. We’re trying to bridge the gap,” said Valette.

    The Senators have tabled an eight-year, $28 million offer and is still on the table as Cowen’s side hasn’t turned it down. They have also talked about Travis Hamonic’s seven-year, $28 million offer. A one-year deal has been ruled out. Can expect them to try and get a deal done in the three to five-year range.

  • Igor Eronko: Have been told that Tomas Kaberle didn’t sign with Minsk of the KHL due to family reasons. Nick Kypreos: Sounding like Kaberle will now join Kladno, his old team. Deal could be one-year for $1 million with an out clause.
  • Ansar Khan of MLive: Red Wings GM Ken Holland said that Daniel Cleary has an open invitation to attend the Wings training camp next week. Cleary hasn’t said if he’ll attend or not. Cleary turned down a three-year offer from the Wings before the start of free agency. After he didn’t sign, the Wings added Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss, are now over the salary cap and would have to move out three players to get under the NHL roster limit if they were to sign him. Jim Matheson: The Wings offer was for three-years with a cap hit of $1.7 million, down from the $2.8 million cap hit he had on his last contract.

Free Agent Hits: Kessel, Sedin’s, Kaberle, Kulda, Wishart and Kichton

  • James Mirtle: The Maple Leafs will need to get an extension done for Phil Kessel between now and the start of the season if he doesn’t want to negotiate during the season. Mirtle thinks he’ll end up with one of the top 10 salary cap hits.
  • Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver SunDaniel and Henrik Sedin are entering the final year of their deals and are talking with the Canucks about an extension.

    “There has been some talk,” Sedin said. “Nothing really concrete, but it’s getting there. We would like to get something done before the season. We’re not guys who like to talk about those things while playing, so we’ll see what happens.”

    They likely won’t be signing for less than three years and won’t be taking a pay cut.

  • Zdenek Matejovsky: (s/t Dave Stubbs) A Tomas Kaberle interview with the Czech Daily Sport confirms he is close to a deal with Minsk of the KHL.
  • Igor Eronko: Jets RFA Arturs Kulda is trying to find a team in the KHL. He has a couple options, but nothing is imminent.
  • Corey Pronman: Islanders prospect Ty Wishart signed with a German team.
  • Cody Nickolet: The Jets have signed defenseman Brenden Kichton to a three-year entry level deal.

Morning Hits: Long List of Ex-Leafs Free Agents, Campbell and Eakin

  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Lists ex-Leaf free agents that are still looking for a home: Tomas Kaberle, Ian White, Carlo Colaiacovo, Hal Gill, Steve Sullivan, Brad Boyes, David Steckel, Matthew Lombardi, Tim Connolly, Jamal Mayers, Ryan O’Byrne and Mikhail Grabovski. Ron Hainsey is still available and it may only take $1 million to land him. Grabovski is still unsigned and according to one NHL GM, he wanted too much money and term in the early days for free agency.

    “He was trying to cash in on getting the buyout and double dipping,” a general manager said. “And once everybody who wanted a centre signed them, there was no place for him to get the kind of deal he wanted.”

  • Matt Kalman of NHL.com: Bruins Gregory Campbell got mixed results from the x-ray taken of his surgically repaired right foot a couple of weeks ago. Things are looking good, but have not healed enough for him to start skating. He is scheduled for another x-ray on Tuesday.
  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: Heika looks at Stars center Cody Eakin, noting that he could be the teams second line center, but also may slide in as their third or possibly their fourth center. Heika names eight wingers that Eakin could end up playing with at some point this season. The Stars added depth down the middle this offseason with the acquisitions of Shawn Horcoff and Rich Peverley.

Buyout Notes: starting time, Briere, Flyers, Richards and a top 10 list

  • Tim Panaccio: Buyouts can’t begin until 48 hours after the Stanley Cup Final ends.
  • Steve Simmons: Simmons ran into Daniel Briere who told him that he expects to be bought out by the Flyers. He would like to stay. (Briere also said on TSN last night that he could be bought out)
  • Tim Panaccio: Panaccio thinks the Flyers will save the second buyout until next summer unless they decide they absolutely need it.
  • Dave Lozo: A Brad Richards buyout would cost the Rangers $24 million. If they buy him out next summer, it would cost $9 million in salary and $18 million in buyout. Keeping him one more year costs $3 million.
  • Benoit Rioux of journaldemontreal.com: (h/t to @AlexManno31) Rioux lists his top 10 potential buyouts. 1. Tomas Kaberle (MON) 2. Mike Komisarek (TOR) 3. Ilya Bryzgalov (PHI) 4.

Morning hits: Stars, Ducks Canucks, Price, Kaberle, Blues, Coyotes bid rejected, Dion’s days numbered?

  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Matheson laughing at a fan site suggesting a Loui Eriksson trade to the Islanders for Ryan Strome and Michael Grabner, and with Islanders fans saying they wouldn’t trade either straight up for Eriksson. Matheson does note that Eriksson could be in play for a front-line center. The Stars also have some defenseman that could be on the move.

    The Stars have lots of young defencemen looking for regular work — Jamie Oleksiak, Joe Morrow and Kevin Connauton — which makes trading Trevor Daley or Alex Goligoski certainly plausible.

    Matheson wonders if the Ducks would take a run at Stephen Weiss.

    Matheson thinks with the Canucks at $63.5 million for 16 players for next season, will use their buyouts on David Booth and Keith Ballard. Both have two years left at $4.2 million cap hits. Mason Raymond is likely gone as a UFA.

  • Dave Stubbs: Addressing a Canadiens Carey Price rurmor: “Price asking for a trade would need to travel a million miles just to reach ludicrous.”
  • John Lu: Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin said a decision on a compliance buyout for Tomas Kaberle hasn’t been made yet.
  • Jeremy Rutherford: Blues playoff issue. Rutherford knew fans who didn’t buy tickets as they didn’t know when the games were starting soon enough. The Blues didn’t sell out three playoff home games.
  • Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat: (h/t Pro Hockey Talk) Blues GM Doug Armstrong on their need for more scoring.

    “This is a public cry that for any GMs that have 50-goal scorers that they want to send to St. Louis, give me a call,” he joked. “This doesn’t happen, you have to deal in reality. The reality is with free agency the way it is now, teams tie up those elusive top-end goal scorers.

    “They draft them. (Evgeni) Malkin, (Sidney) Crosby, (John) Tavares, (Steven) Stamkos were drafted by those teams.”

    The Blues will send qualifying offers to all of their free agents.

    “We’re going to negotiate to try to sign every player that’s a restricted free agent,” he said. “Ownership understands that the window is open now and we have to take care of our own. I don’t see this being a huge free-agency off-season for us. I see it more as taking care of our own business — and then seeing if we want to rearrange some of the chairs via trade.

  • Scott Burnside of ESPN: The NHL has rejected California investment banker Darin Pastor’s bid to buy the Phoenix Coyotes.

    “We have rejected the offer. It didn’t include the elements we had previously discussed were necessary to warrant serious consideration,” Daly said in an email Monday night.

    It was rumored that he was willing to pay upwards of $277 million with $42 million in cash at closing, though that seems unlikely as it would be hard for the NHL to walk away from that.

  • David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail: (h/t Lyle Richardson in the Hockey News) Shoalts piece was written last Thursday after Dion Phaneuf’s pinch that cost the Leafs the game. Shoalts thinks that Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis should move to Plan B and “The plan should include quietly putting Phaneuf on the trade market no later than the NHL draft at the end of June. Nonis will not hit a home run with a trade, nor should he expect to thanks to Phaneuf’s erratic play.” A deal would may only get a modest return, but Nonis should accept it. Phaneuf has a year left with a $6.5 salary cap hit and may not take a pay cut from the Leafs.
  • Tim Wharnsby of CBC: h/t Lyle Richardson in the Hockey News) Wharnsby’s piece was written last Thursday. Wharnsby wonders if Dion Phaneuf’s days in Toronto are numbered. He continues to make the same mistakes he made as a rookie in 2005. Nonis may have to make a decision by draft. The Leafs have organizational depth on the blue line. Nonis would have to feel that Jake Gardiner is ready for a bigger role. Cody Franson may be ready for a bigger role.
  • James Mirtle: On Phaneuf: Mirtle would be surprised if the Maple Leafs didn’t re-sign him.
  • John Lu: Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin on order of positions that mature the fastest: wingers, centers, defensemen and goalies.

Quick Hits: Kaberle, Visnovsky, Greene, Mitchell and Martin

  • Renaud Lavoie: Lubomir Visnovsky got a no-movement clause in his contract extension.
  • Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider: According to Kings GM Dean Lombardi: Matt Greene is about a month away from returning, and Willie Mitchell is likely done for the year. If he comes back, it’s a bonus.
  • Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins defenseman Paul Martin has a broken bone and requires surgery. Will be out six weeks.

Penguins scouting Wild? O’Reilly unlikely for Rangers … Dmen for Senators

  • Michael Russo of the Star Tribune: The Penguins scouted the Wild earlier this week. The Penguins are looking for a top-6 forward and may have been looking at Pierre-Marc Bouchard and/or Devin Setoguchi.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: The Rangers have called the Avs about Ryan O’Reilly, but it’s unlikely they will go after him. The asking price of what O’Reilly is looking for will keep them away. The Rangers will have 3 prominent RFAs that they’ll need to re-sign this summer, Ryan McDonagh, Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin.
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Senators GM Bryan Murray isn’t giving up on the season, but he won’t give away their first round pick or a top prospect for a defenseman. Matheson wonders if they’d be interested in Ryan Whitney. Other defensman that may be available are: Tomas Kaberle, Roman Hamrlik, Mike Komisarek, Marc-Andre Bergeron and Jonathan Blum. Matheson thinks the Oilers should keep Whitney, but if they got a third rounder or better back, they might have to consider it.

Player notes on Jensen, Hartnell, Enroth, Kaberle and Frattin … Rangers fine with Islanders move … No relocation, expansion planned

  • Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun: Canucks prospect Nicklas Jensen will likely stay in Sweden if the NHL lockout ends, playing the entire season with AIK of the SEL.

    “As our team is positioned right now we have a couple of extra forwards,” Gillis said. “He is doing extremely well there and to bring him over here for a short training camp, he’d be flying for 18 hours, you get here and it’s going to be pretty hard for him to crack our lineup.”
