But I don't think 20-25 goals and 4o-50 points is beyond his potential. Could be interesting.
I think the one big thing that could keep him from that is that he's not terribly good at distributing the puck. Controlling it along the boards? Yes. Good shot? Yes. Being creative at all? Not really...

Doesn't mean he's a dumb player or not good, but I don't see him really looking for his linemates or things like that, so it might be hard to get assists
