C'mon. The kid is having a great year and putting up the kind of numbers everyone has been expecting him to reach with the talent level he has. I know we here in Philadelphia are used to disappointment, but being 'realistic' is not expecting a reversion to the 'mean' which has been set in a small sample size thus far.
Since April 2010

Briere: 43 GP - 22 G - 24 A - 46 P - 1.07 PPG - 88 PPace
Giroux: 46 GP - 21 G - 23 A - 44 P - 0.96 PPG - 79 PPace
Richards: 46 GP - 16 G - 27 A - 43 P - 0.93 PPG - 76 PPace
Leino: 40 GP - 10 G - 27 A - 37 P - 0.93 PPG - 76 PPace
Carter: 31 GP - 13 G - 10 A - 23 P - 0.74 PPG - 61 PPace
Hartnell: 46 GP - 14 G - 16 A - 30 P - 0.65 PPG - 53 PPace

He's been our second highest scoring forward for over half a hockey year now (41 games = 1/2 hockey year).
