The story has been the same. It hasn't changed. Perhaps you not wanting to be believe it?
Expected point totals. There is no basis to see them as culprits when they are matching totals, and others are falling short. Attribution error. It's pretty simple actually. Statistically, the depth players are falling short of their expected totals. Yet, you still want to point to the core? Why?
Actually the story has changed. Throughout the entire playoffs everyone was complaining after every game that the Sedins were invisible. And now it's "oh well they were good enough, they did their jobs." No, they didn't do their jobs. The Sedins were completely invisible for all 4 games, and Kesler was invisible for all but maybe 2 periods.
The Sedins aren't matching the expected totals. Where are their goals? Henrik and Daniel combined for a grand total of zero goals. That's not good enough coming from $12.2M of cap space.
