Also Interesting to add that he has now played 82 games as a Habs and he got 24 goal and 44 points, it's good for a 23-24 years old guy.
Definitely has the potential, and no doubt a lot of scouts saw it which is why he was a 4th overall pick. He wasn't just some off-the-board pick, either, as various rankings had him going top ten. As you point out he's already got 24 goals in one 'season's' worth. 30 is hardly a stretch. I just don't think I see much more than that as a ceiling, but 30 is still pretty awesome, relatively speaking, IMO. Especially since he's got good skating, is a pretty good forechecker, and rarely seems to have an out-in-space shift.
