Koivu elevates the play of his linesmates and makes them look better. The same can certainly not be said about Parrish who's an average sniper. But the fact it's NOT true makes it just that much more pethetic. I don't see how Koivu's career .80 PPG is "just a little better" than Parrish's career .56 PPG. Just a 20 points difference over the course of a full season. Yeah they're just a little better all right...
I didn't say they bought the same things to their teams.
If Koivu played a full season,his PPG over Parrish's PPG would be impressive.Koivu rarely plays a full season.
at the end of the yr,Koivu playing on the 1st line,will have #'s just a little better then Parrish playing on the 2nd line.
for $4.2m I want a lot more offense then Koivu gives.
take your rose colored glasses off.
