I mean, last year, nobody expects a 85pts in a season from Kovy or a 70pts season from Pleks or a almost .5 ppg season by Skost.
This year, it's the reality.
Kovalev is a 65-70pts per season player
. Plekanec is a excellent 3rd liner and I expect him to do the same thing that Weiss does in Florida which is a 50pts per season and playmaker. But he's better defensively. About Skost, I think he's in a sophomore slump. I expect him to get a 40pts season next year.
Look at he top scorers around the league. Hardly any of them are over 35 years old. When is the expectation going to be shifted onto the younger players to step up and lead the team. It's comical that players entering their physical prime can be excused for poor play while we continue to expect the world of a 35 year old player who's not even much of a cap hit.
