Let's not forget that in his previous two seasons he had 31 points in 71 games and 35 points in 81 games. Everyone's going to wait and see if this season was an anomaly before going nuts.
He played 17 minutes each night in Toronto and was relied on as a top-6 forward.

In Buffalo and Atlanta, he average 14-15 minutes a game and was put into a checking-line role.

I'm not making any guarantee that he's going to replicate what he did this year, but being given top-6 minutes, PP time and linemates like Grabovski and Kulemin who make others more productive, gives him a chance to succeed and perform.
