I dunno about you, but I don't want to see guys scoring 25-30 points on the top line over 82 games.
I mean, you just described the play of an ideal 3rd/4th liner. Missing the crucial element, scoring or create scoring chances.
Without power play assists Koivu would have like 12 points right now. That line just isn't the best even strength scoring line. I really don't think its Coyle's fault, I think thats on Koivu. There just isn't a playmaker who draws players to him on that line. Koivu, Coyle, and Parise are all high end grinders. Not a bad thing but they really don't have the traits of a even strength scoring line. Not enough creativity in the offensive zone imo
