I'm very sure I said normal season, and I didn't say career best.

Look at Sundin(who I think most people can agree with that Anze is very similar to), he hit 100+(114) points once, and he did this as a 21 year old in his 3rd season, and he never did it again(94 his 2nd best year). He scored 76 points in his 2nd year, as a 20 year old, which also happens to be 1 less point then Anze, in 2 less games, that year also was what a normal Sundin year woud be.

What a player does when he's 20, is not a representation of what he'll do at 26, some players are much more physically/mentally ready for the NHL that they have alot less room for improvement then their peers.
