Man... we are certainly being the optimistic bunch here on this board. 70 - 80 pts? Wow.
I know you guys might think this is a little low but I'd say around 55 pts is realistic for me. I'd be absolutely ecstatic if he got more however. I think we all have to remember that Hemsky is still young... He's really only had one month where he's proven what he's capable of passing-wise. But I think it's bound to happen where Hemsky is going to slump and have to figure things out for himself.
Consistency is a tricky thing with young players no matter how talented. Can he keep up such a high level of performance for an entire 82 game season? Difficult to say. I know he's bulked up in muscle over the offseason but that really just helps him overcome the physcial side of the rigors of playing a 82 game sched. There's also the mental and I don't know if we can tell how he'll handle that aspect once the season rolls around.
