Deep down I know its all Mikko's fault that Parise is underperforming. After all Parise is averaging more shots per game than last year, and they are not going in. That is Mikko's fault Parise's shot percentage is below his career average. Of course, if I were Mikko, I would start wondering whether I would want to pass to Parise, because he can't seal the deal.

BTW, Mikko is actually ahead of his PPG average versus career, but Parise is not. Mikko has more even strength AND power play points than Parise. For all the hype, I expected the numbers to be reversed.

I don't automatically buy into the hype, results speak louder than words.
