You're basing your opinion on a few weeks during an exceptional season? I don't know what's been with him for the last few weeks (my guess would be either an injury or fatigue due to the condensed schedule or possibly both, but as I said, I don't know), but I don't believe we can realistically expect it to continue next season because this has been a very abnormal stretch for him that started all of a sudden.

A few weeks' worth of games is an awfully small sample size compared to the over 500 games he's played on this team and I find it hard to believe that he's been lacking motivation or interest or that he's somehow struggling under the pressure mentally. He's shown in the past that if anyone can take pressure, it's him.

On a side note, Parise hasn't really been at his best lately either.
