You are assuming that only one good node is used to restore replication for 
all the blocks on the failed drive. Which is very unlikely. With
replication factor of 3, you will have at least 2 nodes to choose from
in the worst case and much more in a standard cluster. 

And when you are having more spindles, 6+, one would probably consider
using the second GigE port, which is standard on most of the commodity
gear out there.
