I will second the "very good" statement. Mike did what was asked of him, nothing more, nothing less.

Could he produce more offensively? Sure, I think most of them can. At the same time, I will take pretty good defense, few turnovers and blocked shots over a lot of points any day of the week and twice on Sunday in the playoffs.

He doesn't need to have 5 goals and 5 assists for the team (and how they're playing) to win. I would take a goal and a few assists, but if he doesn't, and they still win, still keep the other team from lighting it up when he's on the ice, it's whatever.

Yes, offensively, he has a high ceiling. He's not being asked to do that now. He's being asked, like others, to sacrifice his own personal abilities and statistics to win. Welcome to real playoff hockey.
