Did he make the team better?

Before trade: 21-13-2 (.611)
After trade: 1-3-1 (0.300)

Not better in reality. Better on paper maybe, but not better in real life.

What about his linemates:

Before trade:
Parise 31 pts in 36 games (0.861)
Koivu 33 pts in 36 games (0.917)

After trade:
Parise 2 pts in 5 games (0.400)
Koivu 0 pts in 5 games (0.000)

So neither his linemates nor his team has improved. Not better this year so far.

Honestly his age is not an asset IMO...not a lot of guys can maintain their scoring level in their 30's.
