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.
Sure, but if I'm an NHL GM I'm going to wait another season and see if he can replicate those numbers before trading worthwhile assets for him in some kind of package.

For all we know, next season he could put up 40 points in 80 games and everyone will forget about him.
