I thought the same. I would not say we were wrong. It's just that he's worked harder and smarter than others during off-season. Who could have predicted it, honestly?

Here's a question: if he hits 20 goals while playing with our role players, do we declare him a second liner? How about if he hits 25 goals?

It's unlikely that he'll hit 25, but it's not impossible.

When it comes to 20 goals, I say that it's at least 50-50 that he'll be able to do it.

If he does get 20 or something clsoe to that, no way is he a fourth liner. At the very least, that's enough for someone to be known as a third liner.
