This is despite the fact that the Devils offense has been pretty mediocre post-lockout while Vancouver has the reigning Hart winner and is much better offensively. In fact, you have to go back to 2001 to find the last time New Jersey scored more goals than Vancouver did. Parise has done more with less.
I agree with everything except the quip on defence.
