That's about where I peg Butler's goal scoring potential on a fairly consistent basis each year. He might do better in any given year but he looks like a bit of a streaky goal scorer so that will hold his totals back. However, as long as he plays with Spezza and on the pp, Butler's point totals will exceed by far anything Shannon ever did or would do in the same position or with the same ice time. That said, I don't believe they are comparable players.
