Viper thinks that getting top 9 minutes would give PAP a chance to hit the 50 mark. Frankly it's not entirely unreasonable as he has a strong offensive game and who is to say if he played on a 1st or 2nd line with PP time that he wouldn't pot 50 points? It's not really an outlandish statement.
You're not understanding me. PAP will not hit the 50 mark on this team, because he won't play on the 1st or 2nd line or on the PP. Even if he played on another team, he'd be a 3rd liner at best. He is unproven at the NHL level, and that isn't redundant, it's the truth. He's 25 years old, and has limited experience at the NHL level (played 5 games with Chicago - 1 A, and a minus 1). I'm not saying that you can't predict NHL point totals for guys in the AHL, but PAP WILL NOT score 50 points this year. Of course, if he played on the 1st line his numbers would be inflated, but he STILL wouldn't put up 50 points.
