2) vs Col - 2 assists - Justin Shultz and eberle scores goals, Maggie gets 2nd assists
3) vs Van - 2 assists - last game of the season, meaningless to Canucks, Yakupov scores both goals, Maggie gets 1 primary and one secondary assist.
go to nhl.com and check the highlights. Maggie was a complementary player to some skilled linemates. That isn't a bad thing but Perron will easily be able to outperform him.
edit - I just checked the highlights. Maggie had one point last year where he wasn't on the ice with Gagner or eberle. That goal was a one hand on stick deflection of a Ryan Smyth gift.
Excellent post and thanks for taking the time to break it down. I was going to do something along those lines if I had the time. They keypoint here is that Paajarvi isn't driving the results and Perron can. But more that Perron isn't shy of the play, will be involved, in high traffic areas and will complement the game of Yak and Gagner more.
