I agree on the consistency issues for Parse but I don't agree with all the scratches (some are understandable). Parse is a rookie; he's going to have ups and downs. And Parse while he's down is still better than Purcell, Ivanans, Harrold, Halpern, etc. in the roles they're asked to play.

It all goes back to Murray's wonky system of accountability. Guys like Kopitar, Brown, Quick, and Doughty seem to be immune to his accountability. Now, I'm not advocating every player should be benched when their play hits the toilet but it can still be addressed with a loss of specialty time or reduced minutes. While guys like Frolov, Johnson, Parse, etc. seem to take the brunt of the accountability for the entire team. The players pick up on these things.
