60-70 points as his peak? That sounds about right to me and is good production for a first to second line player. I'm not expecting him to score 80+ though...just seems like some people are getting a little too excited
80+ is a pipe dream IMO. But I could definitely see him as a 30-30 guy depending on how things work out. I think the biggest hurdle for him (like it is for most players with incredible speed - see Enver Lisin) is less how he can develop his hands to keep up with his feet and more how he can develop his head (which is very difficult to do). To be an elite speedster at the NHL level you need your brain to be able to process the game as quickly as your feet.
