This is full of fallacies.
Parise scored 69 points last year. Elias had 78. Parise was maybe one a 95 point player but he had a fulll year last year and didn't even score 70.
James Neal had a 55 and 39 point season. He is getting passes from Evgeni Freaking Malkin. Kovalchuk was getting them from Henrique for a majority of the year until Zajac became healthy.
