My feeling is that such a player must have been a product of his environment rather than a difference-maker.
I mean, if Parent were a difference-maker then he would have done it either before or after those 2 seasons, right? It kind of strains credulity that he abruptly started and stopped being an all-time legendary performer. We sometimes see goalies do that after one or two great early seasons, when they get solved, but seeing it mid-career is harder to explain.
Does anyone feel like Parent is getting the shaft here? I was really feeling good about him a couple of rounds ago but as Mike Farkas said, every time I dig deeper I get a little more uneasy with him.
