Scoring 25 points in 27 games with Mario is NOT an accomplishment.
It's not as if all his points were cross-crease passes from Mario that only required Morozov to shoot in an empty net... OK, some were, but Morozov did a lot of it himself. Mario created space for him and gave him the puck in the right time... but when you get the puck you have to know what to do with it, and Morozov did. There are tons of players who didn't do diddy squat while playing alongside Mario... Morozov did what he had to do, he finished the plays, he set up his own teammates with intelligent plays, etc. Even Mario himself benefitted from some of Morozov's plays. This year he's averaging more or less one point every two games with the worst team the NHL has seen since the expansion Senators... I'd say that's not too bad.
